Creating a real report

Report development No Comments

A report was requested that would show all of the applied loads (source loads) applied to a pole. This excludes reactions to the loads so applied by guying are excluded as are the loads generated by the pole itself (wind load, self weight, load from tilt, etc.).

The following video shows in real-time the creation of this report and describes the processes and concepts involved.

Here is the complete source code of the report for those interested in examining it further.
