How do I model a part in tension?

Hi everyone,


I am working on a project fo my dissertation to reduce vibration. One method I am tying is to add a second brace onto the surrorting arm, however I want this brace to be in tension. I'm not sue how to model this in solidworks so that I can run simulations (static, frequency and fatigue). I was thinking of doing his by applying an external load to the bracing fixture rather than etraining it, but I'm no sure if this will give accurate results. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
