Abstract or Summary
  • Wire and fiber ropes used in rigorous CBOS (cyclic bend over sheave) applications were investigated. Small diameter stainless steel, tungsten, and Vectran® ropes were tested over small sheaves at high loads and cycle speeds. Sheaves were made with Al6061-T6511 and Al7075-T651 and were coated with 0.002” hard coat anodize; some were dipped in Teflon®. Tungsten was found to have the highest bending fatigue resistance. Vectran® melted under the fast cycle speeds due to rope temperature. Neither aluminium hardness or Teflon® dip caused an increase in sheave wear resistance or rope life.
