    Using Remote Loads to Simulate a Davit Arm

    Andrew Taylor

      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
