Automatically embedded tendon
Tendons can be specified between end points. Tochnog Professional will automatically distribute the tendons over the isoparametric elements, thus preventing that the user would need to search for the list of tendon - elements crossings himself. Tendons can be given materials properties like stiffness, and initial stresses can be specified per tendon. Multiple tendons can be specified in a calculation. The picture show the xx-stress resulting of a tendon embedded in a circular plate.
