Abstract : The report develops equations for the calculation of the terminal forces and moments about a built-in end of a wie rope when the upstream end is subjected to a tensile load applied at an angle measured from the direction taken by the longitudinal axis of the rope at the point of attachment. Solutions for these forces and moments and the rope curvature are given along the length of the cable and the effect of these quantities upon the strands are determined. The analyses are presented for wire rope linear and nonlinear constitutive equations. (Author)
