Abstract:

A detailed description is given of Program CAB3E, a general FORTRAN 4 program for predicting the three-dimensional, steady-state configuration of extensible flexible cable systems. The cable system may consist of an arbitrary number of different cable segments and intermediate bodies. All but the initial body are restricted to simple bodies having only weight and drag forces. The description includes the equations of equilibrium for the cable and intermediate bodies, the subroutines of the program, and instructions for program usage. Several sample problems are included.
