Design of Tension Members If the axial load in a slender tension member is removed and small transverse loads are applied, undesirable vibrations or deflections may occur. Thus AISC recommends: r L/300 ( not for cables or rods) where r is the minimum radius of gyration of the cross section and L is the length of the member.

Threaded Rods and Cables When slenderness is not a consideration, circular rods and cables are often used (hangers, suspended bridges). Rods are solid and cables are made from individual strands wound together. Threading the end of a rod reduces the cross sectional area ( upset end prevents such reduction, but is expensive).
