Designing for minimum elongation

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

We reconsider the variational problem of finding the shape of a vertically hanging rope such that its elongation, due to the rope’s own weight and that of a load attached at its lower end, is minimum. The known solution is recalled and the missing proof of optimality is supplied.
