US Army Corps of Engineers recently experienced wire rope failures at a number of projects. These failures prompted the development of this course. Wire rope failures typically render gates inoperable causing delays to navigation, flooding potential, equipment damage, and possibly even personnel injury.
This course provides information and criteria pertinent to the selection, installation, and maintenance of wire rope and fittings. It applies primarily to gate-operating devices.
