Description

Ropes and cables are widely used as flexible tension members in various engineering applications such as suspension and cable-stayed bridges, mine hoists, offshore platforms, ski lifts, and cranes. In many cases, rope integrity is critical in ensuring overall structural safety, and rope failure can lead to a disastrous consequence. To ensure the structural safety of a rope, periodic visual inspection is generally made mandatory by industry, regulatory and certification bodies, and standard organizations dealing with ropes and cables.
