Using Remote Loads to Simulate a Davit Arm

Hi All,


I'm new on these forums so apologies if I'm not doing this right!

I'm looking for some feedback on a simulation I've done to see if I have done it correctly and will be getting accurate-ish results.


I'm currently designing a small bracket to weld to a vessel deck with 4 bolt holes to support a small davit arm system.

I am trying to simplify the simulation by just having the bracket itself and representing the davit and load carried by the davit by loads.

So I have the davit weight of 28kg as a vertical load on the base, and the max davit load of 205kg acting as a direct transfer remote load at the height and horizontal position of the davit wire. The type of davit and base to be connected are shown in the images below.


I have attached the part file with simulation for anyone who can to have a look at.

Thanks in advance
