Acousto-ultrasonic non-destructive evaluation has been conducted on 5/8 in. (1. 59 cm) diameter wire rope using the stress wave factor (SWF) measurement. Wire rope specimens with controlled damage were prepared by cyclic fatigue loading of the specimens for a prescribed number of cycles. It was observed that the stress wave factor depends upon the number of cycles (i. e. damage). Therefore, the results are very encouraging with respect to the implementation of the acousto-ultrasonic stress wave factor technique to characterize wire rope damage.
