Non-linear Static Analysis

1. Asymmetric Cable

This basic test loads a simple two-dimensional cable by a force in the y-direction:

Asymmetric Cable: Initial (blue) and deformed position. Mesh nodes marked red.

The cable is prestressed with an initial stress (see input file cable.mdl). Deformations and stresses at point A:
