‘Heavy’ Cables - the Non-linear Solution

By now we've nearly come full circle - we have code that performs an iterative analysis that tries to converge on the final state of the structure. In this section, we'll compare our code's results with the linear cable solution we developed at the start of the course. We'll be able to closely approximate the linear solution but also observe the emergence of non-linear behaviour as the axial stiffness of our cable is progressively reduced.
