Caesar II Newbie Notes

Some things that caused me grief in Caesar II:
- Piping bends do not have an angle assignment. The pipe delta-length direction dictates the bend angle.
- Forces that are added to nodes are not automatically included in the analysis; a +F1 must appear in the load case to "activate" them. For example, W+T1+P1+F1. Only then will the forces/moments you've added be evaluated.
