Example text

10,000 lb, measure the distance EF, which will be the theoretical pull required. , or 3000 lb, which is the pull if frictionless rollers were used. To this value the resistance of friction must be added to determine the actual pulling force. 1 Force required to move an object up an inclined plane or ramp. Basic Machines of friction equals the coefficient of friction times the normal force pushing the two objects together: Fr = u × N where Fr = resistive force of friction (pounds or newtons) u = coefficient of friction for the two surfaces (number between and infinity) N = normal or perpendicular force pushing the two objects together (pounds or newtons) The coefficient of friction is a number related to the two specific surfaces that are in contact with each other that is heavily dependent on the roughness of each surface and how the materials slide against each other.

2 tons. 875-ton dividing reaction. 5 tons. Thus, it is apparent that when a chocker hitch is jammed down for hoisting, the resulting very small lift angle produces sling arm stresses considerably greater than the load. Also, the stress is very high at the point where the hitch bends over the upper corner of the load, and can cause quick damage at this point. Such hitches require the use of a supplementary compression member (such as spreader bar) to provide the cross resistance necessary for the weaker load member.

Most rigging operations, however, involve loads in motion. The rigger, therefore, should also be aware of the effect that motion has on loads and the stress placed on a rope, chain, beam, scaffold, ladder, or other load-bearing member because of a suddenly applied load, such as a jerk or impact. For example, a beam may safely support a concentrated load of 1000 lb at the center. If a wheel, however, carrying a 1000-lb load is rolled at high speed over this beam, it will produce a stress in the beam twice as great as that produced by the static (stationary) load.
