slide 9 Dynamics of Roped Falling ME 271 Engineering Mechanics X ? Use the following parameters: • Blue Water 9.8mm Lightning Pro climbing rope • 9.8 mm diameter • E = 160 MPa (elastic modulus) • 80 kg climber a) Modify the rope impact force equation (derived in the notes) so that the rope force (F) is normalized to the climbers weight (W).

Unformatted text preview: b) Plot the normalized rope force for the range of possible fall factors discussed in class. c) What is the normalized rope force for a fall factor of zero? Explain. d) If a climber is 100 ft up from the anchor and is 15 ft from his last protection (i.e., a 30 ft fall), what is the force in the rope?...
