I want to define a zero length element with angle of 39.
Is it correct to define it's vector orientaion like 1 .81 0 -1 .81 0?

i could tell you yes or no BUT why don't you create a simple model and test it for yourself? .. it's 2 nodes, 1 material, 1 element and 1 load pattern.

I always like it when people have to find out the answers for them selves instead of just asking. That is the best way to learn I bet that you are better of with having to "do it yourself" that just getting the answer given to you on a plate.
By the way, you are on the right track with your initial suggestion.
All the best,

Just wondering: why do you need a zero lenght element? What kind of model are you building?
