A simple conductor bending model taking into account the geometry of the suspension clamp has been used to interpret the strains measured on top and bottom wires of two ACSR conductors outer layer. Taut Drake and Bersfort ACSR conductor specimens were fitted with a short commercial metallic suspension clamp and forced to vibrate at one of their normal modes. On each gauged wire, five equally-spaced cross-sections were monitored near the last point of contact of the conductor with the bed of the… CONTINUE READING
