McGraw-Hill Book Co., Inc., New York, NY, 1962, pg. 260, problem 7.8. Analysis Type(s): Static, Stress Stiffening Analysis (ANTYPE = 0) Element Type(s): Tension-only or Compression-only Spar Elements (LINK10) Input Listing: vm31.dat Test Case
The cable AE supports three vertical loads from the points indicated. For the equilibrium position shown, determine
the horizontal Ax and vertical Ay reaction forces at point A and the maximum tension T in the cable. Figure 31.1 Hanging Load Problem Sketch Material Properties
E = 20 x 106 ksi Geometric Properties
Area of cable = 0.1 ft2
= 10 ft
1 = 5.56 ft 2 Loading
F1 = 4 kips
F2 = 6 kips = 5.83 ft Analysis Assumptions and Modeling Notes
An iterative solution is required. A small initial strain (1 x 10-8) is input to give some initial stiffness to the cable.
