CORRELATION between ENDURANCE PREDICTION and SERVICE LIFE of RUNNING ROPES
Round Table Application of Wire Rope Endurance Research – Delft 1993
For all lifting appliances the determination of the effective rope force will be the greatest problem. It's helpful to adopt a typical load spectrum. The variance of correlation between calculated life endurance and actual service life at ropes of the same installation is smaller than at ropes of different installations.
