Simplified analysis of the influence of strain localization and asymmetric damage distribution on static damaged polyester rope behavior
In this paper, two factors that govern the response of damaged ropes are numerically examined independently: strain localization and asymmetric damage distribution. These two mechanisms are studied by using two nonlinear ...
Assessment of static rope behavior with asymmetric damage distribution
In this paper, a mechanical model is proposed to estimate the static response (stiffness, residual capacity, deformed configuration, strain/strain distribution within cross-section, and deformation capacity) of a rope ...
Evaluation of the coupled effect of strain localization and asymmetric damage distribution on rope response: numerical approach based on a nonlinear cable-beam element
In this paper, a numerical model to evaluate the impact of the presence of fractured rope components on the static response of ropes is presented. Specifically, the proposed model couples the effects of two phenomena that ...
Constitutive models for biodegradable thermoplastic ropes for ligament repair
(ELSEVIER SCI LTDOXFORD, 2013-08-02)
The concept behind a biodegradable ligament device is to temporarily replace the biomechanical functions of the ruptured ligament, while it progressively regenerates its capacities. However, there is a lack of methods to ...
