Abstract
The use of cables as a means of transport has been common for a long time; for ropeways, cranes, the transport of electrical energy, etc. The mechanical or electrical problem can be solved using various classical methods or by applying finite element-based techniques [2]. This work puts forward another way of solving the mechanical problem by applying the Bond-Graph technique to a length of continuous cable without any need to divide it into finite elements. The first step is to make an analysis and description of the physical or mechanical phenomena that occur when a length of cable is supported at its ends. Then the general mechanical problem needs to be approached in order to develop the Bond-Graph models to be applied. The second step is to perform different computer simulations of the problems affecting real cables that are subjected to static and dynamic conditions. Starting with a simple case of a cable suspended between two points, some specific dynamic cases will be solved that consist in tensing and slackening the cable, variations in the load conditions and variations in the cable length as a result of changes in temperature, etc. By analysing the simulation results the developed Bond-Graph models will be validated and compared with the results obtained from applying Classical Mechanics. Finally, the most important conclusions of the work will be set out.
