Before i begin i want to ask you if following is achievable with kangaroo.
I have got a suspension bridge analytical model (just lines).
I need to find a form of main cable with hangers according to some constraints:
- i want to keep a deck at its position so fixing points in XYZ but i need Z gravity force from deck to still be transformed into the hanger
- hangers and main cable will have defined load per length
- hangers and main cable will have the room to change their shape to obtain equilibrium.
I am most concerned about the part to transfer loads from fixed deck into hangers.
