Software Rope Strength

Rope Strength software has been developed by INTRON PLUS for assessment of residual strength of wire ropes in service.

Following information is considered for assessment:

  • Inspection data, obtained with INTROS;
  • The weight of the vertical or inclined wire rope;
  • Possible variation of steel mechanical properties;
  • Steel fatigue during rope operation on sheaves;
  • Construction of rope and its loading features;
  • Combined effect of LMA and LF on rope strength;
  • Effect of friction of wires on bearing capacity of broken wires.

Rope Strength provides following data:

  • Rope bearing capacity degradation during its operation;
  • Detection of defect clusters and prediction of dangerous sections of rope;
  • Reasonable timing of subsequent inspection;
  • Residual rope breaking strength and remaining service time.
