Determine 70 meters high big wheel rim & spoke cables eight

Postby newrobert on November 15th, 2014, 9:01 am 

Hi guys

I am working on amusement park project where we need to construct a big like 100 meters high wheel. There will be around 700 ton weight equally distributed on all wheel like ferris wheel and wheel might rotate @ 10-15 minutes per round speed.

I want to know what's formula to calculate how much weight rim and spoke cables I need to hold around 700 ton weight that is equally distributed like passenger cabins in ferris wheel.

I want to start calculating from Rim weight then spoke cables and then hub and spindle.

How to calculate or from where to start or what's formula to know how much weight a rim and spoke cables can bear.

Please advice

Robert
