How can I implement the support of a member on a bracket with fittings?


The most suitable combination is a member elastic foundation with nodal supports, which may fail each.

Figure 1 shows a model with such a support. As it is obvious from the results, the member elastic foundation absorbs the compressive forces and the nodal supports absorb the tension forces.
