Default flapping flag is stretching!
Posts: n/a
Hi, I am working on a flapping flag and everything is working fine but there is one big problem. This is a 2D simulation. The thing is the flag is stretching and becoming longer and longer. I don't know how to increase its extensional rigidity so that it doesn't stretch. Can anyone please give any advice, ideas what i can do?

How did you setup your simulation? I have been trying for a while but couldn't seems to find the right way to do that.
