Performance deterioration in compacted strand wire ropes

Compacted strand ropes are used by the offshore industry in a number of applications. Previous work by Reading University, to evaluate the fatigue performance of galvanised compacted strand rope,¬†and HSL, to evaluate the effects of variations in capping technique had identified a potential deterioration in the mechanical properties of the rope over time. This report involves HSL’s investigation into the extent of this problem. Research report number RR487
