Thanks for replying,

I have run these sims in another program but am having trouble getting it to run on Ansys so I know what my vertical deflection should be.  And you are correct, the structure is a welded frame.  And to clarify, the model was giving deflections thousands of times lower than simulations I have previously done on other software.


These are the supports


And these are the loads

I have a lot of different cross sections that will be tough to show in an image so I have attached the archived file to this post and the material is 4130 Chromoly Steel.
