Numerical Approaches to Movement of Suspended Cable under Wind Based on VFIFE
Dynamics response of suspended cable structure is studied in this paper. It is difficult to analyze this type of structure because of non-linear behavior. VFIFE is an efficient method to solve non-linear problems and applied to calculate movement of cable on wide range. Some results are obtained from time history of cable vibration, such as galloping and characteristic frequency. A case of cable movement under wind shows that low frequency in wind speed is main fact impacting on wave of cable.
