P6_2 Mike Drop: Calculating the stretch of rope

Callum Loch, Troy Edkins, Tristram Nicholls, Nathaniel Woodcock


Young’s Modulus is used to calculate the stretch of a material based on the force exerted and the
initial length. In this paper, this principal value will be used to calculate the predicted stretch
of a sampled dynamic climbing rope due to falls of sequential heights and compare them to the
advertised stretch specification.
