Standard Specification for Stranded Carbon Steel Wire Ropes for General Purposes
|Publication Date:||1 October 2009|
This specification covers the general requirements for the more common types of stranded steel wire ropes. Included in this specification are wire ropes in various grades and constructions from 1⁄4 in. [6 mm] to 23⁄8 in. [60 mm] manufactured from uncoated or metallic coated wire. Also included are cord products from 1⁄32 in. [0.8 mm] to 3⁄8 in. [10 mm] manufactured from metallic coated wire. For specific applications, additional or alternative requirements may apply.
The values stated in either inch-pounds or SI units are to be regarded separately as standard.Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the specification.
