Theoretical Study, Design and Analysis of an Improved Shuttle Car Cable Reel.
NTIS: PB/83-262352 :70 pages
A hydraulic-powered reel system to minimize peak tension transients in shuttle car trailing cables was theoretically designed and analyzed using a computer. A single, spring-loaded takeup sheave stores or gives up cable to maintain tension within specified limits. Controls were incorporated to shut down the vehicle before all cable is removed from the reel and to deenergize the cable in the event of a reel-cable jam. Full-scale hardware configuration drawings sufficient for manufacture of a test system were completed.
