**CIVL3310 STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS**Chapter 5: Cables and Arches Professor CC Chang**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!**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**Solution**qBA qBC**Cable subjected to a uniform distributed load**• Consider this cable under distributed vertical load wo • The cable force is not a constant. wo FH**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**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**Cable subjected to a uniform distributed load**Tmax qmax • Where and what is the max tension? • T is max when x=L FH**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**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**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**Solution**FH=154.4kN 12.43m 17.57m**Example 5.3**• Determine the max tension in the cable IH Assume the cable is parabolic (under uniformly distributed load)**Cable and Arch**FH flip FH What if the load direction reverses?**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**Arches**• Types of arches indeterminate indeterminate indeterminate determinate**Three-Hinged Arch**Bx Ax By Ay**Problem 5-30**Determine reactions at A and C and the cable force 3 global Eqs 1 hinge condition Bx By Ax T Ay Ax Cy Ay**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.**Solution**y 8 kN/m x 10 m =160 kN =160 kN =160 kN =160 kN 160 kN = 0 = =160 kN =160 kN
