I do analysis for crane pedestal by using ansys, but I get some trouble while model and apply load. Could you please take a look and give me some advice
1. How to apply load SWL (safety working load)? I mean, is it necessary to model all crane's pedestal, crane's cabin, crane's boom and apply load at the top end of crane's boom Or we have another way to apply this load. Is remote force suitable to apply this load?
2. How to model a structure to act as a wire?
Thanks in advance,
