More acid rope testing Thursday, 31 May 2012 At 8:54:03 AM mikllaw

This work is all on Richard d\Delaney's Rope Test Lab Page:-

But basically I soaked a bunch of rope in various concentrations of acid and tested half a week later (I'll test the rest in 2 months to see if there is a time effect). The strong ropes (no acid and 1% acid) all broke at the knot (bowline), while the 10% and 30% acid soaked ropes broke in the rope, at about 55% of the normal strength.


The 30% acid was just scary to use and see:-


But I'm not getting the bodyweight failure that initiated this work; maybe it needs time to degrade?
