HST31 Suspension Cable

The HST31 Suspension Cable training equipment is designed for educational institutes to demonstrate tension & shape in a suspension cable and the fundamentals of static equilibrium.  It enables students to study the extension of each spring balance and the effect of a point load by changing shape under concentrated and uniform load. The entire training equipment kit is available with tools and an instruction manual to perform the different laws of symmetrical & unsymmetrical suspended cable, suspension cable with catenary, weight per unit length & parabolic curves.  

Experimental capabilities:

  • Comparison of experimental results of a suspension cable with a catenary
  • Study of the use of the simplified theory assuming a parabolic curve
  • Symmetrical and unsymmetrical suspended cables
  • Determination of the effect of a point load
