||Wire rope offshore: A critical review of wire rope endurance research affecting offshore applications
||HMSO Books, P.O. Box 276, London SW8 5DT, United Kingdom, 1991. 335p. Illus. ca. 200 ref. Price: GBP 60.00.
||Report on an investigation of the performance of wire ropes in offshore applications. Topics covered include: types of mooring ropes currently in use and typical mooring configurations; environmental loading on and response of floating offshore platforms; mooring design procedures and allowable loads in design; tension-tension fatigue and bending fatigue performance of wire ropes; cumulative damage theory; corrosion effects and discard criteria; inspection and non-destructive testing techniques; proposal for a joint industry study on the prediction of wire rope endurance for mooring offshore structures; discussion of results and recommendations for further work.
