Title: RE: Computer model with tension only bracing??

STAAD has tension only specification, different from cables which must have pretension force specified.
otherwise, you have to run each load case with different model configurations to eliminate compression members, a long, tedious, iterative process if i recall correctly from the older STAAD and RISA models i have done.

that or i missed the forest for the trees ?
