Obtaining Connector Tables Obtaining Connector Tables

The TABLE command is used to obtain a list of the force-distance properties of a connector. The form of this command is:


Here, LNAME is the name of the connector for which force-distance properties are desired, for each connector specified. The results of this command will be a table of distance from anchor, horizontal force and tension at the attachment, the derivative of horizontal force with respect to distance from anchor, the vertical and horizontal pull on the anchor, the active length of the connector, the height of the first connection, and the applied force on this connection. If there is a spring buoy at the first connection, the last two entries will, of course, be the height of the buoy and its displacement. An illustration of some of these quantities is shown in Figure 25.
