As rope spools out under load, the wraps that had become pinched in a lower layer can experience significant wear, abrasive damage, and shock load when pulled free. Layers may also loosen from raising an unloaded hook with an overhaul ball that is too small. Wear and damage can also occur at flange points and crossover points. A flange point is where the rope contacts the drum flange as the rope starts another layer. A crossover point is where rope on one layer contacts and crosses the rope in a preceding layer.
These losses are rough average figures for Basic Concepts and Components ropes making a bend of 180° over the sheave and can be reduced for smaller turning angles. Actual friction losses are a function of the style of rope, the ratio of sheave to rope diameter, and the bearing type. 6. S. codes are rigidly fixed and do not vary with a rope-life parameter, as some other codes do. S. practice requires that the winding-drum barrel diameter be no less than 18 rope diameters. While the ratio for the upper block is also 18 minimum, the lower-block ratio may not be less than 16.
R. 35 6 × 61 FWS 6 × 57 SFWS *This table, with some modification, is based on outer wire diameter relationships. 6 shows that for the common range of D/d ratios, from 15 to 30, the plot is nearly linear. 7) where r1 and r2 are the D/d ratios being compared and Lr is the ratio of the relative rope lives. As an example, if a machine with a sheave ratio of 18 has given satisfactory service and rope life in single-shift operation, what ratio would provide similar rope life (calendar) for two-shift operation?
