It is known that a rock hook (horizontal) can withstand an average load of 600-650 kg. To increase the reliability of the belay point, 2-3 rock hooks should be blocked. It is logical to assume that they will withstand a load of 2-3 times more, but for this it is necessary that the entire load be evenly distributed between the hooks. If you hang your own loop on each hook, then the load will be evenly distributed only with one single direction in space. If a person on the railing (vertical), fixed on these hinges, moves horizontally, then the load will be redistributed between the hooks. Some of them will be more loaded, others less.

In the event of a sharp increase in load (let's say, for example, that there was an erroneous set of slack and a further breakdown of the participant), it will be perceived, first of all, by more loaded hooks. The load may exceed the maximum allowable - the hook will pull out. Immediately, the load will be redistributed to the remaining hooks and, perhaps, they will be torn out after the first one. (Naturally, part of the energy of the break will go to pulling out the hook, but "pulling out" the hook is already an extremely unpleasant event).

On fig. 30 and fig. 32 pictured compensation loop. When changing the direction of the load, some branches of the loop will shorten, others will lengthen and the load distribution will be aligned. (Perfect uniformity will not be obtained, but the result achieved is quite acceptable).

A piece of rope 3-4 meters long is tied into a ring with a grapevine or a counter-eight, stitched into carabiners on three hooks clogged (twisted) with a triangle (Fig. 29). The two sides of the triangle are pulled towards themselves and twisted once each. A carabiner is fastened into the two formed loops and the third non-twisted branch (Fig. 30).

On two hooks, the knitting principle is the same. The rope ring is fastened into the carabiners on two hooks, the lower branch is twisted once and, pulling the upper branch to it, the carabiner is fastened into both branches (Fig. 31-32).

If you need to hang a compensation loop on a tree, do this: a piece of rope is wrapped around the tree twice and then the ends of the rope are tied with an oncoming eight or grapevine (Fig. 33). The carabiner is fastened in both turns.

Artificial leather for touch emulation 15.04.2024

In a modern technology world where distance is becoming increasingly commonplace, maintaining connection and a sense of closeness is important. Recent developments in artificial skin by German scientists from Saarland University represent a new era in virtual interactions. German researchers from Saarland University have developed ultra-thin films that can transmit the sensation of touch over a distance. This cutting-edge technology provides new opportunities for virtual communication, especially for those who find themselves far from their loved ones. The ultra-thin films developed by the researchers, just 50 micrometers thick, can be integrated into textiles and worn like a second skin. These films act as sensors that recognize tactile signals from mom or dad, and as actuators that transmit these movements to the baby. Parents' touch to the fabric activates sensors that react to pressure and deform the ultra-thin film. This ... >>

The attractiveness of caring men 14.04.2024

The stereotype that women prefer "bad boys" has long been widespread. However, recent research conducted by British scientists from Monash University offers a new perspective on this issue. They looked at how women responded to men's emotional responsibility and willingness to help others. The study's findings could change our understanding of what makes men attractive to women. A study conducted by scientists from Monash University leads to new findings about men's attractiveness to women. In the experiment, women were shown photographs of men with brief stories about their behavior in various situations, including their reaction to an encounter with a homeless person. Some of the men ignored the homeless man, while others helped him, such as buying him food. A study found that men who showed empathy and kindness were more attractive to women compared to men who showed empathy and kindness. ... >>

Synthetic lift 12.08.2001

According to experts from the Swiss company Schindler, a synthetic cable for an elevator is much safer than a traditional steel one.

The new cable is made of aramid polymer fiber, the same fiber used to make bulletproof vests. It is as strong as a steel cable of the same thickness, but four times lighter.

In addition, the bending radius allowed for synthetics is half that for a steel cable, so the pulleys in the elevator mechanism can be reduced. And the service life of such a cable is longer than steel.
