Italian term or phrase: puntoni a pretensionamento determinato
mettendo insieme vari dizionari ho coniato:
"struts with calculated pretension"

L'insieme si configura come una grande tenda a pannelli (di vetro) sigillati con silicone, che per essere in grado di resistere alla spinta del vento in assenza di strutture orizzontali d'appoggio, viene armata attraverso un reticolo di controventamento di chiara ispirazione nautica, composto da cavi spiroidali in acciaio e puntoni, a pretensionamento determinato, in grado di garantire sotto carichi estremi, deformazioni anche nell'ordine di alcune decine di millimetri.

specifically pretensioned struts/rafters
Explanation:
determinato in this case means "purposeful". I take it to mean that they are pretensioned for the specific purpose to be able to guarantee extreme loads.
