by T.A. Wyatt,

Serial Information: Journal of the Structural Division, 1960, Vol. 86, Issue 7, Pg. 37-60

Document Type: Journal Paper


Working stress in parallel wire cable is normally based on average stress across section of cable; paper analyzes variation of stress across section, caused by deflection of cable; influence of clamping bands and of tensioned wire wrapping are considered; numerical examples show that secondary stresses may be important part of effects of live loading.

Subject Headings: Cables | Stress analysis | Displacement (mechanics) | Tension members | Numerical analysis | Live loads | Load factors
