modelling a cable in nastran

asked in Simulation by (190 points)


I am an engineering student in Belgium and I am looking for a way to model a cable in NX Nastran.
I added a picture of the situation below:

So far I've tried it with a CROD element but I have no usefull output, which make sense because it only carries tensile, compression and torsion loads, my displacement now with the CROD element is zero, can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance
