This article contains a recursive analytical expression for the static solution of an elastic cable under the action of concentrated and distributed forces in three dimensions. The cable’s axial stiffness as well as the concentrated and distributed forces may vary along the cable. The proposed solution is presented on vectorial form; it is exact and faster than a finite-element-based solution.
