Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Most cable logging operations use a spar held in place near the landing by a system of guylines and anchors. Safety and economic considerations require that overloads be avoided and that the spar remain stable. This paper presents a procedure and a computer program to estimate the guyline and anchor loads on a particular system configuration by a specific set of operating line tension loads. A brief description of the analytical model used for the computations is included. There are instructions on the use of the computer program, a description of the necessary outputs, and a program listing for those who wish to prepare the program for use on other computer facilities.

Keywords: Logging equipment engineering, cable skidding equipment, models, computer programs/programing
