Abstract The U.S. Bureau of Mines has established a wire rope research laboratory to examine the factors that affect the life of wire rope. A 2-in-diameter-6X25 Fiber Core (FC) rope was degraded on a bending fatigue machine and the results are contained in the report. This was the first rope in a series of tests on rope of the construction and size rope. Baseline testing at the laboratory was reported in an earlier publication. Tensile and nondestructive tests were performed on samples of the rope to determine the relationship between rope deterioration and rope breaking strength. The tests have indicated that as a wire rope nears the end of its useful life, deterioration with the consequent loss of rope strength increase at an accelerated rate.
