Forced vibration of a ball attached to a cable

Received26 Jul 1999


This work describes an analytic solution to predict the forced oscillation of a suspended cable and an attached ball. The oscillations are driven by a sinusoidal movement at the fixed end of the cable. This problem may be used in the verification of numerical software which is commonly used to design systems with suspended cables.
