WIRE ROPE, 1.5 INCH DIAMETER, GALVANIZED, COMPACTED STRAND, FOR AIRCRAFT ELEVATOR
|Publication Date:||9 May 2019|
This specification covers the requirements for 1.5 inch diameter, galvanized, compacted strand construction wire rope (see 6.4.8 and 6.4.9) used for Navy shipboard aircraft elevators. The wire rope must provide high tensile stiffness to minimize the changes in platform elevation associated with roll-on and roll-off of aircraft and a uniform density that provides consistent tension values in service. It must also provide good bending fatigue performance to accommodate repeated cycling over the various sheaves in the elevator system. The rope must be resistant to corrosion associated with continual exposure to and operation in a salt water environment.
The product covered by this specification is 1.5 inch diameter, galvanized, compacted strand construction wire rope used for Navy shipboard aircraft elevators.
