Re: How to create steel wire ropes by SALOME-MECA?

Hi,

You can represent the  geometry of a rope (CABLE) by an edge (i.e. a line segment, straight or curved) in Salome-Meca. For analysis, you can use CABLE elements.

Please consult the excellent (and to my knowledge, the only English) book, which is freely downloadable, authored by Code-aster Guru J. P. Aubry at

https [colon slash slash] framabook.org/beginning-with-code_aster/

(Chapter 10 and later, for Cable elements).

The book is excellent for beginners as well as mid level users of Code-aster/Salome-Meca.

Hope this helps.

Best regards

Sukumar
