This equipment is used for studying the inter-action between suspension cables and load measuring supports with uniform or non-uniform distributed load on the catenary cable. It is to be used with ST300 Universal Structural Frame (separately supplied).
A light roller chain (the cable) is held by two sprocket pulleys and a spring balance is connected to each end of the roller chain. Weight hangers are evenly placed along the roller chain whose length simulates a parabolic curve. Weights can be put on the load hangers to create symmetrical and non-symmetrical cable.
Instruction manual is also included.
- Analysis using catenary and parabola theory
- Cable weight and tension
- Comparison of a symmetrical suspension cable and catenary
