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 ...
