NOTE 1Strand construction is designated by listing the number of wires, beginning with the outer wires, with each layer separated by a hyphen. Exceptions are stranded wire ropes consisting of three or four outer strands that may or may not be laid around a core.

Elements of stranded wire rope are shown in Fig. There that is, galvanized at finished size. Commonly referred to as bright wire. The wires of superimposed wire layers cross covering wires.

The lay length of all the wire layers is equal, 3. There are four types of force of the rope. The exception is a Warrington layer comprising b filler F , adjdescribes a construction having outer large and small wires where the smaller wires are positioned on layer containing twice the number of wires than the inner layer, a larger pitch circle than the larger wires. The first layer of with filler wires laid in the interstices between the layers. Filler wires is that which is laid over the strand center.

Filler wires do wires are designated with the letter F Fig. Diameter is expressed in inches or millimeters Fig. The lay length of a strand is that corresponding to the outer layers of wires Fig. Manufacture Rope FIG. Mechanical Properties 3. Dimensional Characteristics 3. AExample of Combined Parallel Lay ex. Initial extension cannot be determined by calculation. Torsion requirements are based on the wire diameter and either the wire level, as specified in Specification A, or the tensile strength grade, as specified in ISO Requirements for wire tensile strength are determined by either the wire level, as specified in Specification A, or by the tensile strength grade, as specified in ISO It is FIG.

Terminology Relating to Ropes 3. For classification details, refer to Table 2. See 6. Rope grade does not imply that the actual tensile strength of the strands, and the number of wires in the strand. For construction wires in the rope is necessarily of this grade. The 3 symbol is read as to the longitudinal axis of the rope.

Requirements for cable-laid rope are not cov- 7 over 18 thru 6 ered in this standard. The lay direction of the rope will be either right AZ or and comprising an assembly of two or more layers of strands left AS. Alternate lay can also be supplied with two lang lay laid helically around a center, the direction of lay of the outer strands followed by one regular ordinary lay strand in a strands being opposite to that of the underlying layer.

These items shall be completed contra-lay to that of the underlying layer. Ordering Information 4. Material requirements that are necessary for material ordered under this 5. Such requirements may include, but are not the appropriate requirements of Specification A or limited to, the following: ISO The manufacturer, subject to the limits in Table 1, Item Examples shall determine the tensile strength grade so that the minimum inch-pound [SI] breaking force of the rope is achieved.

Natural fiber cores shall be treated with an Zn-5Al-MM may be substituted for final-galvanized wire at the impregnating compound free from acid. Fiber cores larger than option of the manufacturer. Minimum weight of coating shall in. Steel cores wires shall be galvanized zinc coated , including those of any of single layer ropes larger than in.

Minimum weight of coating shall be as specified in be independent wire ropes IWRC , unless specified otherwise. Table 4. Steel cores shall be lubricated. Cores closed in one operation 6. Minimum weight of coating shall be as process with a suitable lubricant selected by the manufacturer.

Stranding lubricants used for fiber core ropes shall be compat- ible with the impregnating compound of the fiber core. Rope Properties and Tolerances be one of the following: Right regular ordinary lay sZ 6. Right regular ordinary lay will be supplied for six, seven, NOTE 2Where only the rope classification is specified by the pur- and eight-strand constructions unless otherwise specified by chaser, the manufacturer shall determine the construction.

For wire ropes re- except for 3 or 4 strand ropes, and multi-layer ropes with round quested with metallic coated wires, the wires shall be galva- or shaped strands, the length of lay of the finished rope shall nized unless otherwise specified by the purchaser. Inner, filler, and center wires shall example, flattened triangular strand, the length of lay of the be supplied as final-galvanized or drawn-galvanized.

Historical Version s - view previous versions of standard. More A This specification covers stranded steel wire ropes of various grades and constructions manufactured from uncoated or metallic coated wire and cord products manufactured from metallic coated wire. Dimensional characteristics include the diameter and lay length of the rope. Mechanical property requirements include: rope breaking force, spinning loss factor, and stretch; and wire torsions, tensile strength, tensile grade, and level. Cores of stranded ropes shall normally either be of steel or fiber composition. All wire ropes shall be lubricated and impregnated in the manufacturing process.
