Hi Bruce, the initial location of the remote point does not update as the solution proceeds. For small displacement theory, this shouldn't be a problem. For large displacement problems, the applicability of a Remote Load needs to be assessed on a per case basis.
We don't yet provide a tool for measuring displacement at the remote points since, that point doesn't actually move in the current formulation.
It would not be hard to compute the displacement and include it as a result - trivial really. I have needed this result in the past as well and it would make for a much valued enhancement.
