Suspension Cable Demonstration

This structure demonstrates the tensions and shapes in a suspension cable, comparing them with theory.

For use with the Work Panel (STF1), the kit allows several experiments with a suspension cable. Students or teachers fit the magnetic parts of the kit to work panel to study or demonstrate the shapes and tensions in a suspension cable.

Learning Outcomes

  • Analysis using catenary and parabola theory
  • Cable weight and tension
  • Comparison of a symmetrical suspension cable and catenary
  • Unsymmetrical suspension cable
  • A point load on a suspension cable

Essential Base Unit:

  • Work Panel (STF1)

Alternative Products:

  • Simple Suspension Bridge (STR19)
