How about saving it with the rest of all the good stuff you have around here.

Using the established maximum loading scenario for a two-hundred pound climber falling from a height of thirty feet with seven percent rope-stretch, a maximum impact loading of 2,850 pounds
was established.

Most ropes stretch close to 30% dynamically. Where are they getting 7% from?

I caught that too when I was reading it. I think 7% is the max allowable for static ropes, but I could be wrong.

7% could be the static elongation of a dynamic rope.

It could be, but that's irrelevant since they are evaluating, "falling from a height of thirty feet"

Great read, thanks! Very interesting.



I had an aid fall similar to that falling climber diagram, except the belayer was a big rock (solo aid) and the pro was a #2 frost sentinel, sideways in a shallow placement.
I landed upside down, about 10 feet off the ground Shocked

It's probably a typo. The force doesn't match a 7% stretch but is more or less what you'd get if you assumed a 30% stretch.

I'm not sure if this is your original work, but if so, do you have an abstract? I am way too lazy to read through it.

30 % refers to dynamic elongation
7 % refers to static elongation.

Did you notice what it says under the drawing ?

"Maximum force"

It's not my work, it's just something I found while researching something else on Google.
