There is no exact science as to getting the correct diameter wire for your fencing purposes but in general terms:
The main use of straining wire is to keep a a stock fence or a mesh net (e.g. chicken wire) taught all the way to the top. It also gives the fence more strength. Straining wire is also often used to increase the height of a fence (especially stock fences). If, for example, you were dog proofing the garden and you have a very bouncy dog (Collie) that could jump over one of our 1.2m tall stock fences, you could put in two lengths of straining wire above the stock fence at 10cm height intervals and that would make it much less likely for the dog to escape.
