Cable problem

[ Edited ]

Hello Experts,
I want to know how to solve this cable problem using NX AdvSim 7.5 & NX NASTRAN, this task of cable problems are critical for some prospects, then I should like to know how to do it in NX7.5 using both NX NASTRAN basic nonlinear model (NLSTATIC SOL106) and also Advanced Nonlinear module (SOL601), thanks!.

In this example a suspended cable is subjected to uniform self-weight and concentrated loads.

The geometry, properties, loading, and theoretical results can be found in Section 4.6.2, Figure 4.16 and Table 4.1 of Tibert, 1999.

Best regards,

I've asked the same about a rope/chain. See here:

We also made some detailed experiments about the modeling of a rope in 101 and 106. If our student is finished with writing down I will post it.

Regards, Maik
NX 7.5.2, NX-Nastran 7.1

Re: Cable problem

Not any answer arrived??. The problem is simply posed, then I would love to be able to have a solution to this nonlinear problem, thanks in advanced!.
