Please help with fixture advisor (elastic support)

Question asked by Yavor Dimitrov on May 18, 2012

Hello guys,

 

I'm last year student in Industrial Engineering and I need your help.

I am doing FEM analysis of a rigid chain scissor lift. Mine looks like this one:

My question is how to present the chains? Do I replace them with elastic support and give them certain stiffness?
