DYNAMIC STIFFNESS MATRIX OF SAGGING CABLE

A dynamic stiffness matirx for a damped cable that is suitable for dynamic-stiffness analysis of composed systems is presented. By utilization of trigonometrical solution functions with complex arguments, the derivation was strongly simplified. By means of example calculations, stiffness functions are discussed and compared to the results of other authors. For tightly stretched inclined cables, the use of the more accurate theory presented here is indispensable. For very taut cbles, the stiffness functions approximate in a wide range the static stiffness terms of a straight rod.
