Is it also possible to specify a cable length in RF‑FORM‑FINDING?

Answer

In addition to a prestressing force or the target cable sag, it is also possible to specify the cable length, as shown in Figure 01.

Figure 01 - Entering Cable Length

The program then tries to fit the cable subjected to the acting force (a load case of the "form-finding" type with a dead load, for example) in the way that the length corresponds to the specified length.
