I am trying a suspension bridge in RM Bridge V8 and I model main cable by cable element, but when I calculator seflweight of suspension bridge then it error Node support in node of main cable and I modeling node support have value 1e+10 in CMX, CMY, CMZ, and deflection is very large, So, I hope everybody help me can fix error and linking cable elements into a unified whole is a soft wire structure.
if can, everybody can give me a file RM Bridge to refer, please.
I hope reply to every body about my problem.
Thank you so much and good luck.
Hello, sorry for making a question instead of an answer in your post!! I am making a suspension model in RM bridge also. I have a question on main cable modeling because the "DEMO example" on suspension bridge is locked somehow, I can't open it probably. So how to model the main cable as a "Cables" member? as each cable member need 2 "reference segment"s, start from the stiffening girder, to what member? Even I try to create the 3D points, but still don't know how to generate the cable member from those points?
