Abstract : A 5-in. section of multiconductor armored cable was subjected to tension, torsion, and bending. Two analytical approaches were used, and the results were compared with those from experimental bending tests. One analytical approach, a modified fundamental beam theory using an equivalent beam method, was attempted without success. The other method, a finite element approach, proved to be a viable cable analysis method. A first-order approximate method (strain-displacement formulation) that can be used when a quick, approximate stress prediction is required is also proposed. Finally, a number of cable design guidelines based on analyses and experiment are presented. (Author)
