I want to analyse using tension only elements or cable elements that introduce initial tension.
What are the possible ways to reflect this in a typical structure?
Are the features of Construction Phase Analysis and Create Load Cases Using Load Combinations available in this case?
For non-construction phase loads, you can use the 'Create Load Cases Using Load Combinations' function.
A dedicated tensile force element with an initial tension can be applied as a way to introduce a pretension to a prestressed truss or cable, and can also be applied during the construction phase.
Since the pretension used as the initial tension is a load, the 'Create Load Cases Using Load combinations' function is available.
