Experience with Untwisted Ropes
RoundTable – WIRE ROPE DISCARD CRITERIA - Zurich 1989
The haul rope of an aerial tramway system was untwisted most probably during the installation procedure. This occurred not only once, but the replacing rope was handled in the same way. A second tramway acted exactly the same way. Knowing about these four cases we should take the extraordinary occasion and learn what it means to a rope to be untwisted, either in theory or practice.
