RE: Catenary

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi Conrad.

Supports are at different levels.  It's actually on a 30deg slope, which is
why I considered it significant enough to check.  Had it been less than
10deg I probably wouldn't have bothered.

Thanks to all the responses, I now have several references that will guide
me through it all.  I was going to do it from basics but I figured the work
was already done.  I'm lazy anyway, and I like "plug & play" :^)

Is the catenary sloping? Or are the supports at different levels?

Norris and Wilbur elementary structural analysis covers cables, with general
theorem for supports at different levels.
