Default A realistic chain

i want to make a chain i know there is a way to simulate the chain (i think dynamics) but i really dont know how, i dont even know wht to look for.

i dont really know if what i said make sense...but basicly what i want is to make a weries of modified torueses that are linked together to sorta bend down.

if anyone can help me, that would be great...

thanks in advance

Maybe your chain could be done in the same way...
