MPUSTC String Tension Calculator Is this correct and reliable ? You can calculate for tension forces in ropes pulling objects on a frictionless surface as well as tension forces in ropes that are suspending an object. �" � @�Q�Q렶 �9VS�9G���d���8��E2:#�h��4���� �G0����蠈/3�P���!�\!�#�uF�"ʄ��A����2:>]Ab���r�Xͳ��S��7��I Tension Calculator Enter the force being applied to an object, and the angle of that force to calculate the total tension. �a��A�GG�I":P�l�A��"!Ap�#���� �B �T�� ��0�DYC�r����2�B�DDR���h��DAQ��Fj��A" ��.��B:#4"��!�)�eo�S*eW�q�E�k���*0��e!&qG�>GF���G�p�� ��4,�`�#�h�#�� $�0�$�I�F�)���0��:��F�P���:�0��D! )l��]� Even so there is a fair bit of variation across the set I use on a 660mm (26”) scale bouzouki. -��-�5m Desecrated Guest. ����qњ hDXDu#����� �PH��m�#��:#h苡eXfԵ�׍�¤P���h� �@�HYNP稧)8!wcS�A$2!莅M�4� &Qp�QN�,� �t�+H�E�D�.��aPAr�s�hV�l� �PAI���h�U�h�F�I$y(r�2x>#�$! Joined: Jan 8, 2005 Location: Poland . The McDonald Patent Universal String Tension Calculator (MPUSTC) is a handy calculator to figure string tensions in steel-string instruments. This String Tension Calculator will determine the string tension (in pounds force, and kilograms force) for several popular string types which will produce the desired note for a specified string size. %PDF-1.1 %���� @��!�1��R0�(�* ��#�P�#�=�]E��)YE)�+���B�����DF�1�A��Gj�.�h�FAdt���p���'+���e�KYM�ZAdT���0���ސ��uQ Messages: 15,981 Likes Received: 891. The McDonald Patent Universal String Tension Calculator Discussion in 'Sevenstring Guitars' started by Desecrated, Aug 30, 2007. We made the Stringjoy String Tension Calculator to help players make an informed decision about which custom guitar string gauges will work best for their needs—no matter how unique they may be. This tension calculator uses Newtons of Force and degrees for the angle. 1 0 obj << /Type /XObject /Subtype /Image /Name /Im1 /Width 1542 /Height 280 /BitsPerComponent 1 /ImageMask true /Length 12405 /Filter /CCITTFaxDecode /DecodeParms << /K -1 /Columns 1542>> >> stream This tension calculator will help you determine the tension forces acting in a rope, string, or any tension members that undergo pulling or stretching forces. � M�+�s;�jG�� p��(":�E`d#�A(p�Rh��DB�(pAC(���#�b3hhB���]Dф ��AG:#D]�l����'DtT"�F":.��L�+�„�a�4"�� �Wt".,"!��҄P� �����d�"�a���E�|�Dmf �\*e9DC�:$( A.vp@�#�:"10a���D� ����]�:HDDs4cH��/�(B&�H��a�#�DB! d���$�-��xg� �9D�i.��Q �Z(p�;ZDtGF�ReqN�.��$�Bx0��Q(FE�i$��nZ�iA8@�v���DtL���P�8t�LBH�;,G2Db0�Fh��)لaKX� #��EM�A�!��� �1 Desecrated, Aug 30, 2007 #1. If you plug in your scale length, string gauges and tuning, it will give you a readout of the tension on each of the strings. To get the most out of this tool, read these instructions to understand what it does, how it works, and how to use it. For bouzoukis I go a bit lighter, around 8-10 kgs per string. scale length at common pitches For example a light gauge guitar set has string tensions of 10-12 kgs per string, and that is probably a good starting point.
