(OP)
Hi! I wonder how to model a rope/cable element in dynamic analysis when tension/compression appears. What are the methods to performing it and proper solvers for that methods. Example of parameters used would be great!

Ps: Normally i modeled rope with rod, but at dynamic analysis that rod gets compressed so its not good.

Take a look to the CGAP elements in the Quick Reference Guide.
