Title:Analysis of wire ropes with internal wire rope cores
Author(s):Phillips, James W.; Costello, George A.
Subject(s):Wire Ropes
Internal Wire Rope Cores
Abstract:Stresses in the individual wires of complex wire rope are determined for rope constructions having an internal-wire-rope core (IWRC). The ropes may be pulled, twisted, and bent over a sheave or drum. Specific results for 6x19 Seale IWRC and 6x25 filler-wire IWRC ropes that are prevented from twisting indicate that the maximum stresses (exclusive of contact stresses) are typically 1.5 to 3 times as large as the nominal rope stress based on rope load and total metallic area.
