Anyone recommend a calculation for fatigue life for spiral strand steel wire rope?
Confirm to permanently remove your answer!
Fatigue life calculations can be calculated in accordance with API RP 2SK (reference 5) using the T-N curve.
NRM = K
N: Number of cycles of load
R: Ratio of double amplitude to Minimum Breaking Strength
M: Slope of T-N curve
K: Intercept of T-N curve
