Effects of bending stiffness and support excitation of the cable on cable rain-wind induced inclined vibration
The main objective of this paper is to investigate the responses of the inclined cable due to rain-wind induced vibration (RWIV) considering the bending stiffness and support excitation of the cable. The single-degree-of-freedom (SDOF) model is employed to determine the aerodynamic forces. The 3D model of a cable subjected to RWIV is developed using the linear theory of the cable oscillation and the central difference algorithm in which the influences of wind speed change according to the height above the ground, bending stiffness, and support excitation of the cable are considered. The numerical results showed that the cable displacement calculated by considering cable bending stiffness in RWIV is slightly smaller than in the case of neglecting it. And, the cable diameter had a nonlinear relationship with cable displacement, where when both diameter and mass per unit length of cable increase cable displacement will decrease. In addition, the periodic oscillation of cable supports extremely increases the amplitude of RWIV if its frequency is nearby that of the cable.
