Simplified Methods for Analysing Steel Strands

The paper presents some design-office-type methods for large diameter and multilayered spiral strands with a minimum of equations and formulae. The proposed design methods are based on previously reported orthotropic sheet theory which, unlike previously published models, concentrates on the influence of interwire/interlayer contact phenomena as regards strand overall axial, torsional and free bending characteristics.
