modelling a compressed and stretched ligament
 
Im wanting to model a ligament whilst it is being compressed and stretched however, i can't find anything that will compress the domain then stretch it back again. Can anyone suggest anything i could do?

Thankyou,

Lindsay

I am not sure what you want to do but can't you use the non-uniform scale function in CFX-Pre?

Hi Lindsay,

What flow are you trying to model around this ligament? It sounds like more of an FEA simulation to me.
