4 Fundamentals of Force Multiplier Mechanics

Force multipliers and the four fundamentals of mechanics are important to understand in order to be a successful creator. The force multiplier is the means by which you can increase the force that you output, while the four fundamentals of mechanics are what keep your creation stable and functioning. If you want to be a …

9 Ways To Quickly Get A Hold of the 3 Types of Mechanical Advantage Systems

Get More Done With Less… and remove the mystery out of “the theory” of Mechanical Advantage Systems. Mechanical Advantage Systems ~ arguably is the “bulwark” of rope rescue… giving strong support, encouragement and leadership to those in need. Wait!  Doesn’t “bulwark” have to do with wall like structures raised for defense? Like a seawall?  Sort …

PULLEYS AND MECHANICAL ADVANTAGE SYSTEMS

This is a repost from CMCPro.com 5/17/22 Where To Get CMC Pulleys Raising systems are essential in any rescue or rigging scenario in which loads are lifted using rope. A raising system using a combination of pulleys to leverage the force applied in lifting is referred to as a mechanical advantage (M/A) system. Whether building …

Progressing to the Next Level in Understanding Mechanical Advantage Using The T-Method

Kudos goes out to Peak Rescue Institute for the help. The purpose of this lesson is to give the student rescuer a more thorough understanding of mechanical advantage. It will review basic concepts learned in the technician course and add advanced concepts such as the T-method, system efficiency, haul system progressions, and counter-balance haul systems. …

Mechanical Advantage Progression

Thank you to Peak Rescue Institute for the graphics In this section, students will learn five different MA systems: 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, 4:1, and 5:1. This range of MA systems is sufficient to address the majority of rescue hauls encountered in normal field operations. As with most other aspects of rope rescue, consistent practice building …

Functionality of Mechanical Advantage and Considerations

The Mechanical Advantage (MA) systems used in rescue incorporate one of the most elegant simple machines known to man, the pulley. While it is Newtonian Physics that explains how pulleys work, we owe the Sicilian mathematician Archimedes for its invention. History tells us that Archimedes boasted to his king that with enough pulleys he could …
