We propose a perturbation scheme to produce an asymptotic expression for displacement and tension of an inclined cable, under vertical static forces. At the various perturbation orders, it is required to solve a linear boundary value problem, representing the vertical equilibrium equation, and an algebraic equation, nonlinear just at the first order, expressing a kinematic compatibility condition. It is shown that the tension requires high order asymptotic approximations to fit numerical results.
