Abstract : A method of calculation is demonstrated, which is applicable to monocable aerial ropeways and permits the determination of the mechanical characteristics of the plant while considering the vehicles as concentrated loads. A description of a computer program is also given. After introducing two applicable examples and comparing the results obtained by the above proposed method and the method of calculation which is in normal use, a few considerations are formulated on the profiling of these types of aerial ropeway plant.
