-5 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 4 Cable System Analysis Base on the calculations that we came up solving the 3 cable system tower, and the 4 cable system tower, the most safety and convenient tower in this case is the tower with 3 cables. The cost for the 3 cable system is $439.43 dollars, and the price for the 4 cable system is $585.91 dollars. As a group, we came up with the conclusion that tower with 3 cable system is safer that 4 cable system, because it has more residence over the wind hitting the tower with the capacity of 40.0 kN force.

The 3 cable system tower have a price of $439.43. The price difference among the two tower systems is $146.48. For a better result and due to a temporary tower is better to use the 3 cable

system tower, because it supports a greater tension than the 4 cable system. The cable diameter exposed to the tower will be the 16mm (5/8 in). The max tension that this cable can support is 24 kN force.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
