The Standing Skyline: A Maximum Log Load Solution Procedure
Many harvesting operations use a standing skyline cable system in steep topography or on fragile soils. We present an efficient algorithm for calculating the maximum log load which can be carried with a standing skyline system, suitable for analyzing situations where the logs are either fully suspended above the ground or partially suspended above the ground. For. Sci. 42(2):220-227.
