Advanced Rigging Physics: Vectors & Mechanical Advantage (Trailer)-Richard Delaney

This course covers the basic physics that apply to roping systems. This course should enable technicians to develop a deeper understanding and a sound approach to problem-solving. Considering force and tension as vectors and finding creative ways to apply these in the field makes it so much easier to define resultants and calculate mechanical advantage …

Pulley system efficiency tests with MAESTRO, I’D S, PRO TRAXION, ROLLCLIP…

There can be a big difference between the theoretical efficiency of a pulley system and its actual efficiency. Here are test results from the Petzl lab. From Gear In Use 4: Rope Access and Confined Space 1. Efficiency depending on the device used at the head of the system. The force required to raise a …

Want to Increase Your Learning Capacity? Match Your Metacognition with Your Cognition…

The learning process is fascinating to me.  We are created unique in every area of our lives.  Is it any wonder why every few years there are new break-throughs in slowing the aging process, fitness, health, mental capacity, technology and learning.  Ever heard of “metacognition”?   I hadn’t until more recently. What you are about to …

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 …
