I try to find out how much deformation a machine part will have when it is hoisted up with cables. I understand that this will be a dynamic process. But with some assumptions I think I will be able to derive the necessary information using an static FEM model.
The problem that I'm facing is what fixtures I can use to mimic the hoisting cables. In the attached picture the cables are drawn in red. I started with using the "fixed geometry" fixture at the points that the cables are attached to the machine part, (green arrows), however I do not think this will mimic the real behavior.
What Can I do to realistically take reaction forces that the cables exert on the part into account?
