You can go to the geometry in model tree and change part behavior to 'rigid'. You could split the geometry into sectors and apply pressure to the sector which touches the rope. You could alsocreate a nodal names selection using worksheet(https://www.padtinc.com/blog/beyond-clicking-named-selections-move-to-the-worksheet/)/or manually using CNTRL + N and then apply a pressure to this nodal named selection. If you also want to apply tangential forces you could create a cylindrical coordinate system and apply forces relative to it.
