Diagonal members may be considered tension-only within LARS by using countered panel type 3 or 4.
I am modeling a single-span truss. The truss has diagonals that were clearly designed as "tension only" members (i.e. 1" diameter rods). Is there a way in LARS to designate these members as "tension only"? Currently the LARS program is showing these members going into compression and obviously giving extremely low load rating results. I am running Version 6.00.01.08.
