A SURVEY OF PUBLICATIONS ON MECHANICAL WIRE ROPE AND WIRE ROPE SYSTEMS

The purpose of the report is to determine the extent of literature available in regard to the mechanical response of stranded cables. The survey has been organized into three categories, i.e., single wires, single strands and the composite wire rope. The various parameters, such as the mechanical response, the fatigue behavior, corrosion, corrosion protection, shock and impact and others have been considered under each of these major categories.
