Vectors, Scalars, and Unit-less Values, Part 1

Full Video is at the bottom A force multiplier is any factor or condition that contributes to the overall stress of a rope system during a dynamic state. Rating this dynamic state or rope movement/stress is best represented as the Dynamic System Safety Factor (DSSF). In other words, what’s our weakest link during the operation …

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 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 …

Force Multipliers and The Fundamentals of Mechanics

Force Multipliers To understand rigging is to understand at least some aspects of trigonometry and vector physics. The knowledge of angles, components, and resultants is synonymous with quality rope rigging. To study vectors is to study the physical qualities of force that has both direction and magnitude. There are two important distinctions we make in …
