  • Description:
    The tapered cable concept is explored and developed. The introduction is followed by a review of historical background, examination of several types of taper from a geometrical viewpoint, and the derivation of the equilibrium equations pertaining to two cases of general interest: the axially suspended cable and the catenary cable configuration. These equations are then used to make comparisons between the optimum, tapered cable and the common cable. Advantages and disadvantages of the tapered cable are summarized and a set of tables is provided to assist in constant-stress catenary cable calculations.
