Expansion behavior of cellular solids

The expansion behavior of cellular materials is especially attractive for potential applications such as design and development of bio-inspired adaptive materials since most of biological materials have a cellular microstructure at least at one of their hierarchical levels. Wood, bone, bamboo, ice plant and honeybee combs are examples of such natural materials.

How to Model Moving Mass in ANSYS

I want to model moving mass on a simply supported beam in ANSYS but I can not reach to analytical results, I tried defining CPs and some other methods. I want to find a linear solution and I prefer do not enter in Nonlinear analysis.
