Abstract : The basic mechanical properties of cordage fibers were determined in relation to the properties of cordage yarns, strands, and the finished rope. An analytic method involving a mechanical-statistical analysis was developed for treating the statistically difficult range of samples involved. A low translational efficiency of fiber strength (40%) to strands and ropes was attributed largely to a low fiber-to-yarn translation (55%). The method produced results agreeing within the limits of engineering accuracy with those obtained experimentally.
