Hi was wondering if anyone knows how to calculate the tension in a overhead conductor say 'Dog' conductor over a 100m Span with a wind of 900Pa given its properties are as below(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

'Dog' Conductor properties

Diameter = 14.15mm

Weight = 0.3965kg/m

Area = 118.8mm^2

CBL = 32.7kN

Expansion Co = 0.0000139

Mod of elasticity = 139

This is with an initial tension of 10% CBL.

And no change in temperature.
