ON THE TRANSVERSE VIBRATION OF WIRE ROPE

Two mathematical models for the transverse vibration of tensioned wire rope are compared with experimental results. The model for a string without stiffness is found to be adequate. Added mass coefficients for transverse vibration are determined experimentally for a family of 3/8 in. diameter wire rope. For frequencies higher than 70 Hz, the formulation for a long circular cylinder is found to be adequate.
