Elem : Element number

Node I : Node number of the I-end of the element

Node J : Node number of the J -end of the element

Pretension : Pretension Load entered by the user

LOF Force : Calculated Lack of Fit Force

SUM : Sum of Pretension and Lack of Fit Force

Local Vector : Direction vector of truss element

Angle : Angle between the truss element and the horizontal plane. The angle used to project the cable endpoints in the x-axis direction of the cable element.

Elasticity : Modulus of elasticity of truss element

Area : Cross sectional area of truss element

I-Node Disp : Displacement at the I-end of truss element (Real Displacement)

J-Node Disp : Displacement at the J-end of truss element (Real Displacement)

Deform : Elongation of truss element. Pretension corresponding to this elongation becomes Lack of Fit Force.
