Document Type: Journal Paper
The behavior of freely suspended cable systems under a single concentrated load is examined and results are presented to demonstrate the effect of various parameters on the cable response. Variation in the magnitude and location of the applied load and the extensibility and initial tautness of the cable system are considered. For symmetrical cables, results are presented for loadings applied in each principal direction (horizontally in-plane, vertically and horizontally out-of-plane). The results for vertical loading are extended to cables in which the supports are at different elevations.
