Armored Cable Termination Stress Report
The Armored Cable Termination (ACT) stress analysis below was completed using MapleSoft software. The ACT's maximum load is 10,000 lbs, and is made of ASTM A4140. Stress is calculated at sections 1 through 8 as shown in the fighres below. The constants are the ultimate and yield stress, the safety factors, and the working stress.
The margin of safety at each section of the ACT is given in the table on sheet 4 below. This margin of safety is based on the calculated stress at each section, and the yield stress.
