Tag: Simple Cables Cable-Supported Structures

A cable is a linear structural member, like a bar of a truss. The cross-sectional dimensions of a cable relative to its length, however, are so small that it cannot withstand bending or compression. Consequently, under loads at an angle to its longitudinal axis, a cable sags and assumes a shape that enables it to develop tensile stresses that resist the loads. Structural efficiency
