cable supported structures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Are there any good references out there for cable design data including
installation guidelines and thermal effects?  The application consists of a
mast type column with cables extending down to support a long span roof
structure.  The cables will vary in length, with the longest being 140 feet.
Alternatively, would rods be more appropriate?
