Description

Rope consists of a group of strands of fibers or wires, twisted or braided together in various constructions and sizes [1,2]. Fibers used for fabrication of synthetic ropes are made of various polymers including nylon, aramid, polyester, and polyethylene. Wires used for fabrication of wire ropes are typically made of carbon steel. Other metals such as stainless steel and monel are also used for wire materials.
