QUESTION: Where can the user find Elastic shortening information in Conspan output ?


User needs to go to BEAM TAB -->RESULTS --> In the new PRINT window check the Properties option under Design .

In the new Enhanced report Viewer window under Span 1 , Beam 1 option --> Straight Option, the user should be able to get the Beam Shortening (PL/AE) information in  "inches" .

For time dependent losses Conspan does not provide the length information , user has to calculate it manually.

Please see the attached screenshot for more information.
