i would like to find out the method to calculate loads on a rigging bridal,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the situation, a weight needs to be hung at a point between two roof beams,

so it is hung on two steel wire ropes from the beams of an suitable length to achieve the correct position, from this i would have all the information to calculate the internal angles but would like to know how to calculate the forces on the beams, should the length of the steel ropes increase or decrease thus changing the internal angles and how does this effect the forces????

regards
