Force Optimisation of Cable-Stayed Bridges including Cable Sagging

In this video, Jürgen Bellman introduces you to the workflow of force optimisation with non-linear effects such as cable sagging.

To go ahead with a force optimisation and including non-linear effects, it is recommended to start with a linear optimisation first. If cables get compression in the linear analysis, the non-linear analysis will not be successful.
