I would like to simulate a test frame that I am designing for an experiment. The main frame is made of aluminum and there is an 8x8 grid of steel wires. The bottoms of the 4 upright aluminum posts are fixed to the ground.
In the experiment I am planning to use turnbuckles to pretension each steel wire to 10 lbF each. How can I model this load in an ANSYS static structural simulation?
Thank you very much!
