Cable pulling considerations

Posted on 2021-06-07

In this article various topics are discussed regarding cable pulling, specifically the usage of weight correction factors and sidewall bearing pressure factors for pulling up to 6 cables in a duct. And we discuss about the conduit jamming ratio and how it is considered according to different manuals.

On an example from Brugg Cables, it is shown how to set up your cable pulling project in Cableizer. This example validates our cable pulling module and has been added to our test cases, ensuring that cable pulling calculations won't unexpectedly and unnoticeably change.

Release of multi-layer backfill method

Posted on 2021-05-19

With the multi-layer backfill method, it is possible to simulate the filling of a rectangular trench where the cables are buried with two superimposed horizontal layers of different materials, stacked above the cable bedding, respectively duct bank. Learn more about the method used, its range of validity, and its validation.
