Abstract:

An investigation and test of cores used in purchase cable for aircraft arrestment gear is made to determine if there is a core material superior to that presently used. Consultations with representatives of the wire rope industry and acknowledged authorities in the field of fibre testing, research and development are conducted. Wire rope core materials are selected and tested. Recommendations are made, with requirements for further testing, of possible superior substitutes.
