acceptable bend radius for a cable or tendon?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
How do you determine an acceptable bend radius for tension only cable?  I
know for elevators they are switching to kevlar rope because it does not need
as big diameter and heavy of pulleys.

If you have a 3.5 or 4" diameter tension cable [not embedded in concrete] how
sharply can it safely bend in it's final state?
