On the dynamic interaction between strained ropes and their foundations
Round Table On The Present Trends Of Wire Rope Endurance – Milano 1973
Strained ropes, which are used in several fields of engineering (electricity conductors, hoisting and transport equipment, etc.), are fixed at the ends (or at several points) to anchorages of various types, connected in their turn to frames, bases, etc. In many practical cases it is important to know the modes of vibration of the ropes, which modes are obviously influenced by the characteristics of the elements to which they are anchored~ The present study considers a rope with one end anchored to abase and examines the influence that the base characteristics have on the mode of vibrating of the rope. The study was conducted both theoretically and experimentally on a specially designed model.
