Intended for graduate students and practicing engineers, this book is concerned with the mechanical behavior of wire rope. It begins with the equations of equilibrium for a thin curved wire in space, solves these, and applies the results to determine the stresses in a simple strand. These results are then extended to ropes with more complex cross sections. Numerious examples are worked out to illustrate the theory. This second edition includes new chapters on tension and compression of a cord, on fatigue, and on approximations.Numerous examples are worked out to illustrate the theory and the test results discussed. This second edition includes new chapters on tension and compression of a cord, fatigue, and approximations.
