[MBDyn-users] Simulation of a nom compression element

How can I simulate an element the stands only tensile, like a cable?

I want to simulate a cable hanging from the tip of the boom of the crane
with a cargo at the tip of the cable.

I tried to use a rod joint but many times in the simulation it supports
compression, what is not true for real world.

I also tried to split the cable in many rod joints. In the Easyanimm, the
cable seems flexible but it still supports compression loads.

Any idea to work it out?


Best Regards,
