FATIGUE BEHAVIOUR OF A 24 MM LOCKED COIL WIRE ROPE SUMMARY
This paper gives results of trials in bend over sheave fatigue and
tension fatigue for a 24 mm locked coil wire rope . General laws are then
deduced that give the number of cycles to failure versus :
- average stress and diameter ratio for flexion over sheave ,
- average stress and fluctuating stress for tension fatigue .
