steel rope

Recommended Posts



I have a problem. In my current model I have two stell ropes. At the moment they are both defined as PROD elements. The disadvantage is, that PROD elements can take Pressure forces.

In reality steel ropes are not able to tape pressure forces. Both steel ropes have a preload set to 100 N.

Is there any possibility to solve that problem in optistruct?


Tanks for helping!
