something just does not add up right with this test setup cause history shows that 99% of rope breakage during pull test is around the first bend in the fig or almost in near the beginning of the knot and here yours broke off above the knot.
This does not make sense .
Nope... the rope broke in the knot at the ram end. Not above the knot. Not sure why you would say it broke off above the knot?
In reply to:
THe rope broke in the knot at the long Yosemite tail finish at 4500 lbs. Remember, though, this sample had already been prestressed to 3100 lbs...and then pulled again to destruction.
