How to simulate steel wire ropes in SW/M?

I'd want to simulate steel wire ropes in elevator assembly and validate the vabration property. But I don't know how to model the steel wire ropes which have stiffness and damping coefficient and also are flexible to control the elevator up and down. I have read some papers and they simulate this situation with bushing in ADAMS. But in SW/M there is no direct way to do this, is anyone meeting this problem? The attached may help you to understand what I say.
