The cables are inclined, and therefore the actual (effective) stiffness EA is a function of their nominal stiffness EA, through a relation proposed by Tang (1), 22 2 () cos 1 12 EA EA effective G E Aa T =  +   Most cables are stresses to about 40% of their ultimate strengths under permanent load conditions. Cables under normal loading conditions have their effective stiffness approach the actual stiffness. A factor of safety of 2.2 is common for cables, which results in an allowable stress of 45% of the guaranteed ultimate tensile stress (GUTS) under dead and live loads. Note that the weakest point of a cable is its anchorage with respect to capacity and fatigue.
