Ansys - only tension element

  1. Jul 3, 2016 #1
    Hi,

    What element should I use to model a tension-only (no bending stiffness) cable/chordae?

    The problem is that I need to use a hyperelastic material model with it.
    And LINK180 does not support the hyperelastic material model.

    Thanks!

    Have you looked at LINK10?
