Abstract—Electromagnetic nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of wire rope has been in use for over fifty years. Regular NDE inspections provide a powerful tool in monitoring the rate of degradation of a rope. Wire defects and condition of a haulage rope (construction 6X25 FW) have been studied and presentedin this paper.
Index Terms—discard criteria, nondestructive evaluation.
