A. To report cable sag from an advanced cable analysis

To include the cable sag in the output from an advanced cable analysis, use the following procedure.

ヒント: Cable sag is only available for advanced nonlinear analysis. If requested for a standard cable analysis, a warning message will be reported in the output.

An advanced cable analysis can also report the deflected shape of the sag in the cable using the PRINT CABLE SAG command.

  1. On the Analysis and Design ribbon tab, select the Post Analysis Commands tool in the Analysis Data group.

    The Post Analysis Print - Whole Structure dialog opens.
  2. Click Define Commands in the Post Analysis Print - Whole Structure dialog. The Analysis/Print Commands dialog opens.
  3. Select the Cable Sag tab.
  4. Click Add. The PRINT CABLE SAG command is added to the input file.
The output of a successful advanced cable analysis will report the cable sag in local XYZ coordinates. Post-analysis print will calculate the actual, nonlinear cable displacements along the length of cable.
