Chapter 5: Cables and Arches CIVL3310 STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS Professor CC Chang

2
**Cables: Assumptions Cable is perfectly flexible & inextensible**

No resistance to shear/bending: same as truss bar The force acting the cable is always tangent to the cable at points along its length Only axial force!

3
**Example 5.1 Under Concentrated Forces**

Determine the tension in each segment of the cable. Also, what is the dimension h? 4 unknown external reactions (Ax, Ay, Dx and Dy) 3 unknown cable tensions 1 geometrical unknown h 8 unknowns 8 equilibrium conditions

4
Solution qBA qBC

5
**Cable subjected to a uniform distributed load**

Consider this cable under distributed vertical load wo The cable force is not a constant. wo FH

6
**Cable subjected to a uniform distributed load**

From Eqn 1 and let T = FH at x = 0: Integrating Eqn 2 realizing that Tsin = 0 at x = 0: Eqn 5/Eqn 4: Tsinq T FH FH

7
**Cable subjected to a uniform distributed load**

Performing an integration with y = 0 at x = 0 yields FH y = h at x = L Cable profile: parabola

8
**Cable subjected to a uniform distributed load**

Tmax qmax Where and what is the max tension? T is max when x=L FH

9
**Cable subjected to a uniform distributed load**

q FH

10
**Cable subjected to a uniform distributed load**

Neglect the cable weight which is uniform along the length A cable subjected to its own weight will take the form of a catenary curve This curve ~ parabolic for small sag-to-span ratio Hangers are close and uniformly spaced Wiki catenary If forces in the hangers are known then the structure can be analyzed 1 degree of indeterminacy Determinate structure hinge

11
Example 5.2 The cable supports a girder which weighs 12kN/m. Determine the tension in the cable at points A, B & C. 12kN/m

12
Solution The origin of the coordinate axes is established at point B, the lowest point on the cable where slope is zero, Assuming point C is located x’ from B: From B to A: FH FH

13
Solution FH=154.4kN 17.57m 12.43m

14
**Example 5.3 Determine the max tension in the cable IH**

Assume the cable is parabolic (under uniformly distributed load)

15
Example 5.3

16
Cable and Arch FH flip FH What if the load direction reverses?

17
**Arches An arch acts as inverted cable so it receives compression**

An arch must also resist bending and shear depending upon how it is loaded & shaped

18
**Arches Types of arches indeterminate indeterminate indeterminate**

19
Three-Hinged Arch By Bx Ax Ay

20
Problem 5-30 Determine reactions at A and C and the cable force 3 global Eqs 1 hinge condition Ay Ax Cy Ay Ax By Bx T

21
Example 5.4 The three-hinged arch bridge has a parabolic shape and supports the uniform load. Assume the load is uniformly transmitted to the arch ribs. Show that the parabolic arch is subjected only to axial compression at an intermediate point such as point D.

22
Solution y 8 kN/m x 10 m =160 kN =160 kN 160 kN = 0 =
