STRUCTURES - STRAIN EXAMPLES

1 Elevator cables
Assume 
Elongation under load
2 Suspended building
3 Differential strain
Assume

4 Shorten hangers under DL to reduce differential strain, or prestress strands to reduce ∆L by half


Note: Differential strain is additive since both strains are downwards
To limit differential strain, suspended buildings have <= 10 stories / stack
