Trying to give an example to a co-workers about compression. Imagine a piece of metal that requires 10 lbs to be formed. Currently his setup has a 10lb actuator on one end and a fixed wall on the other. He wants to change this to 2, 10lbs actuators opposing one another. I'm trying to explain the free body diagram to him with little luck. Any way you could help me explain this to him.
