Wire Ropes: Tension, Endurance, Reliability

Springer Science & Business Media
Free sample

This book on wire ropes is dedicated mainly to all users of wire ropes – the construction engineers, operators and supervisors of machines and instal- tions running on wire ropes – and it is divided into three main sections. The ?rst section deals with the di?erent types of wire rope and their component parts, the second looks into the e?ects of wire ropes under tensile forces (s- tionary ropes), while the third takes a look at the wire ropes under bending and tensile force (running ropes). In addition to deriving the various tensile, bending and twisting stresses, the compression and the extensions, the book includes the ?ndings and descriptions of a great number of detailed experiments, in particular those concerning rope endurance under ?uctuating tension and bending and rope discard criteria. As far as possible, the test ?ndings have been evaluated s- tistically so that not only the mean value but also the scattering is apparent. It has been the main concern of this book to present the methods used to calculate the most important rope quantities (rope geometry, wire stresses in the rope under tension, bending and twist, rope elasticity module, rope torque, rope e?ciency, the bearable number of load cycles or bending cycles and the discard number of wire breaks, etc.) as well as to explain how they are applied by means of a large number of calculations as examples.

This book provides a detailed study of technical drawing and machine design to acquaint students with the design, drafting, manufacture, assembly of machines and their components. The book explains the principles and methodology of converting three-dimensional engineering objects into orthographic views drawn on two-dimensional planes. It describes various types of sectional views which are adopted in machine drawing as well as simple machine components such as keys, cotters, threaded fasteners, pipe joints, welded joints, and riveted joints. The book also illustrates the principles of limits, fits and tolerances and discusses geometrical tolerances and surface textures with the help of worked-out examples. Besides, it describes assembly methods and drafting of power transmission units and various mechanical machine parts of machine tools, jigs and fixtures, engines, valves, etc. Finally, the text introduces computer aided drafting (CAD) to give students a good start on professional drawing procedure using computer. KEY FEATURES : Follows the International Standard Organization (ISO) code of practice for drawing. Includes a large number of dimensioned illustrations and worked-out examples to explain the design and drafting process of various machines and their components. Contains chapter-end exercises to help students develop their design and drawing skills. This book is designed for degree and diploma students of mechanical, production, automobile, industrial and chemical engineering. It is also useful for mechanical draftsmen and designers.
