On the lawfulness of the application of cumulative damage theory on tension ropes
ln two previous papers (Faraggiana. & Rossetti 1989 & 1990) we reported the results of tests on a tension rope. The experimental results of tests on wires (traction, torsion, bending), of static breaking load tests, and of fatigue tests performed on a 12 mm rope, both when it was new and after ten years of use on ski lifts facilities, were compared.
