Dip Calculations for a Simple Cable

A method for evaluating the central dip corresponding to an applied load for a simple flexible cable has been developed, based on the relationship between change in dip and change in applied load, and the known maximum permissible dip for the maximum applied load, with due attention to the other factors such as constructional elongation, thermal expansion and movement of end supports.
