    --Stiffness and remote load--


      I am trying to simulate a shaft supported by two bearings. I am currently modeling the bearing interaction with remote loads. I do this by constraining all translation DOF and allowing motion in all rotations. I would like to add stiffness to the different DOF so that the results from a different simulation could be included. Is there any way that I could add stiffness to a remote load?
      Need to be able to apply different stiffness for each DOF including the rotational ones.
      If remote loads are not the right approach is there any other way I could include the stiffness in to the model
