A concise finite element model for the analysis of simple wire strand with a broken helical wire under axial load is presented in this paper. Due to the implementation of accurate helically symmetric boundary condition, the analysis model can be established based only on a small slice of the wire strand cross-section consisting of all of the remaining intact wires excluding the broken helical wire. Full three-dimensional solid elements were used for structural discretization. The finite element results showed that the sharing of loads among the remaining helical wires is highly non-uniform. The two helical wires adjacent to the broken helical wire bear higher loads. The helical wire opposite to the broken wire bears least load.
