The Effects of Frictional Forces in Bending Cables
In this work the effects of the frictional forces involved in a steel cable subjected to axial and bending loads are studied. The results show that the cable bending-stiffness is affected more strongly by the frictional forces when values of the helical angle of outer wire and the ratios of cable radius to bending radius are getting larger.
