Abstract:

MULTIPLE AND PARALLEL, WHICH ARE HELICALLY POSITIONED OR CAGED IN A CIRCULAR, LINEAR ARRAY CONFINED IN THERMOPLASTIC STRUCTURES AT A RELATIVELY LONG HELICAL PITCH. The composite, caged, tensile member structures are coaxially built-up in separate contrapitch layers to achieve the desired cable lengths. Each caging thermoplastic layer is designed to keep each tensile member isolated from its neighbor to prevent them from abrading each other when the cable is loaded, vibrated or flexed. By using this design characteristic, it is possible to control the tensile member spacing with precision at any pre-determined angle of pitch. It is possible to design and fabricate cables that are unusually flexible and inherently torque free. Author-PL
