The stiffness relationship and the distributed mass matrix for a geometrically nonlinear three dimensional straight axial element is derived for use in prestressed cablenet structures. The justification for the use of a linearised stiffness relationship is provided through a theoretical derivation. Results using this simple element have shown a high degree of correlation with results to those available in the literature obtained with more complex curved finite elements, analogous membrane models and other techniques.
