I am doing a global FE Analysis for a mooring pontoon for different load conditions (deck load, wave load(hogging and sagging), other environment loads and etc,) in ANSYS APDL (static, structural). actually, the model floats in the water. Wanted to apply theoretical spring support ( resilient supports) at the corners that hold the model, in order to get stability in the model, and how to apply spring boundary conditions at the bottom of the model. Please kindly suggest. Element Type: SHELL181, Analysis: Static structural
