A theory is presented which will predict the stresses in a multilayered cable, subjected to axial, bending and torsional loads. In the axial case, the axial force and axial twisting moment are represented as linear combinations of the axial strain and the rotational strain. An analyisis is also made of a cable subjected to axial loads and wrapped around a drum. The analysis involves a superposition of the stresses caused by the axial loads and the bending loads.
