Assessment of remaining rope life based on results of magnetic examination
The paper discusses the accuracy of predictions of remaining rope life based on results of magnetic tests and defines representative statistical correlations between the two. The correlations are based on data gathered in the recent joint CANMET and USBM investigations as well as that available from the Krakow University of Mining and Metallurgy. The information presented in the paper allows an improvement in the accuracy of the rope condition assessment and prediction of its remaining life.
