Cable structures are classified, and examples of some types are illustrated together with a discussion of their advantages and disadvantages. The problem of establishing the initial shape of the structure is discussed. Some techniques for computing the displacements of suspension structures resulting from changes in static loading, considering the geometrical nonlinearity, are described. A procedure for determining the displacements of stiffened and unstiffened cable three-dimensional structures is outlined that is suitable for computer solution. Results of numerical studies made utilizing this technique are presented.
