By using the variational principle to set up the mathematical model of the reflector for the FAST, we can get the node location of the cable-net and tension of the main cable by solving highly nonlinear equations of the mathematical model. A new layer-by-layer substitution approach has been proposed for solving the highly nonlinear equations, through the calculation and simulation it verifies the correctness of this method.
