Armored Cable Termination Stress Report
The Armored Cable Termination (ACT) stress below was completed using Maple 16. The ACT load is 10,000 lbs, and is made of ASTM A4140. Stress is calculated at sections 1 through 8, as shown on the figure on sheet 1 / 4. The varions constants shown on page 1 / 4 are the maximum ultimate and yield stress, the safety factors used, and the working stress based upon the two previous values.
The margin of safety at each section of the ACT is given in the table on sheet 4 / 4. This margin of safety is based on the stress calculated at each section, and the working stress shown on sheet 1 / 4.
