Abstract:

The study was planned to yield results useful to designers as well as manufacturers and users. The specific purposes of the study were 1 To provide an analytical method of predicting overall cable rigidity. 2 To provide a method of forecasting the effects of temperature change on cable rigidity. 3 To provide a means of determining relative rigidity of any of several materials to be considered for use in a specific cable component. 4 To outline a method for the determination of relative rigidity of different combinations of conductor configuration and wire size. 5 To make available a tool for determining, from the viewpoint of rigidity, an optimum overall mechanical design. 6 To provide an analytical basis for predetermining acceptable component design in meeting the flexibility specifications for military application.
