How is it possible to consider tension members in RF‑/DYNAM Pro?

Answer

Dynamic analyzes are always performed on linear systems. To avoid nonlinearities, such as Considering tension members in a dynamic analysis requires a complex approach. This procedure is described for the add-on modules Natural Vibrations and Equivalent Loads in this technical article.

However, it should be considered whether this time-consuming consideration is necessary for your system or whether linearization is sufficient.

In the Nonlinear Time History add-on module, tension members are considered as usual. An example is described in this technical article.
