This major handbook takes a comprehensive look at rope-making materials and structures, properties and mechanics. It covers rope production, focusing on laid strand, braided, low-twist and parallel yarn ropes and rope terminations. Rope testing is examined in depth, as well as the key issues surrounding rope retirement. Case studies from a variety of environments are studied. This is an essential reference for everyone involved in the design, selection, use, inspection and testing of fibre rope."@en ;
