FAQ

What is Length of cable between Supports?
The Length of cable between Supports is defined as total length of cable measured along the perimeter or curve of the cable and is represented as S=0.5*sqrt(1+((q*L/2*H)^2))+(H/q)*sinh(q*L/2*H) or Length of Cable=0.5*sqrt(1+((Uniformly Distributed Load*Cable Span/2*Midspan Tension)^2))+(Midspan Tension/Uniformly Distributed Load)*sinh(Uniformly Distributed Load*Cable Span/2*Midspan Tension). Uniformly distributed load is a force applied over an area or length, denoted by q which is force per unit length, Cable Span is total length of cable in horizontal direction and Midspan Tension is the total tension acting in cable at midpoint.
How to calculate Length of cable between Supports?
