Abstract

Cables are very promising structural elements for space applications since they can be packaged easily in a small volume and function as truss members when in a stretched state. However, an exact analysis of cable structures is difficult because of cable slackening and large deformations. In this paper, a nonlinear cable structure analysis method is derived based on Hamilton's principle and a general purpose cable structure analysis code (CASA) is developed. Higher-order strains are included in the method by taking positions, not displacements, as variables, and cable slackenings are given by a nonlinear, axial stiffness of cable. Nonlinear static and linear dynamic analyses of structures composed of cables and/or trusses can be treated by the present method.
