Item Summary

Title:Photo-realistic graphical representation of helical cable structure
Authors:Huang, Chang
Date Issued:2007
Abstract:Cables and wire ropes frequently incorporate strands consisting of double and triple helical wires. Stranded conductors are helically wrapped into larger units that again are helically laid into cables. A structural analysis of such complex geometries requires knowledge of the net elongation, bending and twist of the individual wires in these strands. Equations that describe the centerlines of these wires and the wire surface areas are derived in this paper. These equations are useful in the development of structural models as well as accurate three-dimensional plots of the cable geometry. Three parametric equations are used to describe the center line of the double and triple helical wires. A companion parametric equation, using two parameters, describes the double and triple helical wire surfaces. These equations are used to produce plots of the three-dimensional shape of individual helical wires and second, third degree helical cable. Such plots are useful in designing cables where geometrical interrelationships are easily understood.
