  • Experimental Snap Loading of Synthetic Fiber Ropes 

    Pearson, Nicholas John (Virginia Tech, 2002-12-12)
    Energy is lost when a rope transfers from a slack state to a taut state. This transfer is called a snap load and can be very violent. It is proposed to use synthetic fiber ropes as a type of passive control device in new ...
