ESPEJO, Édgar  e  MARTINEZ, Juan Carlos. Characterising mechanical transmission wire ropes’ typical failure modes. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.1, pp.77-83. ISSN 0120-5609.

The National University of Colombia’s Engineering School’s AFIS research group has helped several public and private institutions during the last five years in analysing the causes of failures presented in elevation and transport machinery leading to expensive consequences and even the loss of life. A group of typical wire rope failure modes have been identified, along with their common causes. These are presented in this work to offer help to our industry’s engineers and technicians, allowing them to identify possible risk situations in their routine work regarding the wire ropes which they use and approaches for carrying out wire rope failure analysis.

Palavras-chave : failure analysis; wire rope; failure mode; fracture; wear; corrosion.
