Cable Sagging Level Span.xls
PURPOSE: Analysis of cable sag with supports at the same vertical level. For spans of the order of 300 meters and less, the sag and tension calculation can be carried out by parabolic formula with sufficient degree of accuracy. For the case of very long spans, catenary formula gives more accurate results than parabolic.
