Two Rope Tension System A-Frame Resultant Insight, Part 2

Two Rope Tension System A-Frame Resultant Insight, Part 2 To review, this simplest way to make sure it’s stable is to visualize your resultants and make sure they’re landing within the footprint of your system. Then provide some guying for stability and the insurance that in the event that someone should change, you’ll still be …

Two Rope Tension System A-Frame Resultant Insight, Part 1

Excerpt from “A Guide to Artificial High Directionals & Two Tension Rope Systems” Defining a resultant is what determines if your high directional is going to be stable or not. So when we say resultant, the full term is a resultant vector. A vector is a measure of force and direction. Here, we’re talking about resultants through the …

Elevated Anchors – Setting Up For The Resultant

The use of elevated anchors, i.e. high directional anchor systems, is a mandatory requirement of NFPA 1670 for rope technicians. Having said this, it is impossible to discuss one facet of rope rigging and not address all the many other aspects at the same time. A rope system is like a living breathing thing; like …

Friction and Resultants: How Come We Don’t Fall Down When We Walk?

Hey all, I want to preface that before we dive into this stuff on resultants, friction and direction of vector forces… this is tough stuff.  The reason I am bringing this out in the open,  is because it is critically important to understand.  Not just slightly important, but critically important!  Why?  The very ground you …

Elements of Rigging – Understanding Resultants – A Case Study

As we found during our T Method conversations, there are numerous Ts… T1, T2 ect…  The same applies to understanding resultants. Each line that intersects with a pulley or change of direction, is considered a component (C1, C2 ect…).  When one component meets another, an angle is formed.  This new angle has it’s own magnitude …

Understanding Resultants | Anchor Considerations in Rope Rigging Systems Vol. 2 Seg. 4 – Rigging Lab

Resultants is another core rigging physics concept that is at time confusing and misunderstood.  During this sequence we will clear up some of this confusion. The way we address knots, MAs (Mechanical Advantages), and Anchors in these videos are more general and with a focus of the finer points that are many times overlooked. Our …
