RoundTable – WIRE ROPE DISCARD CRITERIA - Zurich 1989
This paper outlines the possibilities and limits using radiographic techniques to examine cable wire ropes. With suitable measurements cracks with openings ≥ 0.5 mm may be detected. The method is applied in the field to verify and confirm the results obtained by magnetic inductivity or for investigations on a laboratory scale.
