Reduction in braided rope strength due to twist
It would be also interesting to extend the study to other braided rope constructions such as 12-strand and double braids , both frequently used in marine applications.
Improved mooring line technology for tankers and gas carriers at exposed berths
2) Recent tests on of parallel-strand nylon rope with top-quality marine finish now demonstrate that this type of rope has much better tension cyclic fatigue properties than double - braid nylon rope tested in the past.
External abrasion testing of fiber ropes
… produces friction, fusion, and tearing forms of abrasion, typical of those experienced in service by marine hawsers. Abrasion test trialswere run on 8-strand ropes and double braid ropes made of nylon, polyester, and polypropylene.
Materials aspects of wave energy converters
ties of a rope are well understood [18-22] but there is remarkably little hard information on long-term performance in a marine environment. For similar initial rope diameters the double - braided rope is about 30% stronger than the eight- strand rope but has a final elongation to failure which is a good deal less at ~ 15% for nylon double-braided as opposed to ~ …
Very high strength-to-weight ratios for fiber strength members
8-strand plaited rope had appeared in Europe and this construction was improved by the 3-strand manufacturers and became a basic product for the marine industry. Small braided cord triggered development of larger braided ropes and resulted in a 2-in-1 braid ( double braid) that was patented by Samson Cordage Works.
Cordage institute guidelines for marine grade nylon and polyester rope-making yarns
In the early 1980s, the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) sponsored a research program to Develop … Rope manufacturers provided specimens of twenty four different types of rope for testing, including 3-strand, 8- strand and double - braid nylon and polyester ropes As part of this research program, a cyclic load “fatigue” test procedure was developed.
High modulus rope designs
small diameter double braids but this construction is very seldom seen in heavy marine applications due to it's low strength-to- weight ratio. The Jacketed parallel core (multi- rope ) is a new design made specifically for deep water mooring applications.

Two years later, in 1987, the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) published its first edition of relevant guidelines to purchasing, manufacturing, inspecting and testing double braided hawsers: … Hawsers; - OCIMF Procedures for Quality Control and Inspection during the Production of Hawsers; - OCIMF Prototype Rope Testing.
