Abstract

The authors describe the various types of steel rope fatigue-testing machines currently used and highlight their limitations, such as size and slowness. Furthermore, they explain the principle for the construction of a machine capable of overcoming the above limitations, describing a prototype and the equipment suitable to achieve the required performance. The article ends with a report and comment on the results of tests carried out on strands of identical diameter and construction, whose wires were surface-treated differently.
