CABLE UNDER AXIAL LOADING: AN ANALYTICAL MODEL
The classical problem of a cable under axial load has been revisited by Weiguo Wu and Xin Cao: Mechanics model and its equation of wire rope based on elastic thin rod theory, International Journal of Solids and Structures, in press, 9 pages.

Model is applied to a multistrand ccable given in a book by Costello (1990). Axial stiffness results compare very well.
