Abstract:

Taking advantage of geometric considerations, and following previous studies by Hruska, the authors give explicit expressions for the determination of axial force, bending and twisting moments in helical wires, and for axial force and twisting moment in the core of a 7-wire strand subjected to axial and torsional displacements. The equations given are linear, could be similarly developed for strands of any number of wires or for strands subjected to large displacements, and should be found practical by designers.
