In recent work, a design methodology for multi-lay wire strands has been developed. The current paper expands on this earlier work to study wire ropes in which the strand is a basic component. Wire ropes with the three types of cores, independent-wire-rope-core (IWRC), fiber-core (FC), and wire-strand-core (WSC), are considered. This work further generalizes the previously developed linearized theory which, through substantiation with experiment, is felt to be reasonably accurate for most wire rope behavior. The theory is then utilized to examine various parameters in the design of wire ropes.
