Hi Guys, greetings from Toronto.

I’m new to Sofistik and trying to learn to work with Teddy. However, I’m having difficulties understanding Teddy Manuals for syntax and commands for Tendon Program defining tendons for a precast prestressed girder.

I got this example from a friend but still hard to fully get the point:

+PROG TENDON URS:3

HEAD

$ !!! MUE 0 BETA 0 DO AND AZ SHOULD MATCH

SYSP NOPS 12 MAT 2 ZV 2922 AZ 50^2*#PI/4 LITZ 1 MINR 5 BETA 0.3 MUE 0.000 ECC 0 SP 0 DO 1 $

PDEF RI STR 1000 $ [KN]

$PDAT FTL 1.0 FTYP LINE $ FORCE TRANSITION LENGTH

ECHO PLOT FULL

SCHH H2 0.18

PLOT GEOE NO 1 FACH 5 TYPG DUTE PCS 1

PLOT FACT NO 1 FACH 10

END

Could anyone help me decode these steps, particularly for TOPP?

Thanks
