Unformatted text preview: downward) of the cable is described by the following boundary value problem. T ) ( ) ( 2 2 x w dx x y d = with y(0 m )=0 m and y( 60 m ) = 0 m The cable tension T is 10000 [ N ] and the load (weight) distribution w(x) along the cable is given by ] / [ ) 20 / exp( 10 10 ) ( m N x x w + = . Determine the shape of the cable using finite difference method with m x 2 = ∆ ; i.e. find y(2), y(4), … ,y(46), y(48). (a) draw the shape of cable in x-y plane using plot() function in Matlab. (b) find the maximum deflection and the location. You need to write a Matlab program to solve this problem....
