Hello, we are doing an activity at work to calculate what the shock load would be on a wire cable under the following conditions.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

There is some conjecture on how best to do this so we figured it would be best to ask some people with bigger brains than us ;)

Hopefully the following info is enough for anyone to assist us.

Please let us know if any further info is required.

Many thanks.

------------------------

Stretch coefficient of wire cable is 0.333%

Cable length is 20m

Cable angle is 15 degrees from perpendicular

Fall length is 1.2m

Weight on cable is 100kg
