The report summarizes wire rope testing conducted at the Naval Air Engineering Center on the various test machines during the indicated period. The effects of synthetic and fiber cores upon wire rope fatigue and interstrand notching are examined, as well as their relation to wire rope creep and its interrelation with fatigue. The influence of the number of wires in a round strand rope is investigated, and an analysis is performed to determine the effect of the loss of metallic area from abrasion upon rope strength for these constructions. Fatigue data is given for ropes with variable wire strength and also for two non-rotating wire ropes. Load-strain and load-torque data is presented for a number of 6 X 25 FWLLRS fiber and synthetic core ropes.
