Tension and Compression Study | Rigging Physics II

Written By: Lance Piatt

Tension forces are two forces acting on one object, moving in opposite directions (away from one another) to stretch the object. Compression forces are two forces acting on one object, moving in opposite directions (towards one another) to compress or deform the object. In this video, the Arizona Vortex is used as a compression member, with the tension forces coming from mechanical advantage systems on either side. Sterling Rope is the Official Rope of Rescue Response Gear’s The Rigging Lab. The Lab uses Sterling’s 11mm HTP Static for many of our rigging systems. A multi-use rescue/rappel rope that resists moisture and has high abrasion resistance. 100% polyester static provides significantly lower elongation and is perfect for any haul system. Ideal for high traffic expeditions, mountain rescue, military, industrial rope access, and swift-water rescue uses. Certified to NFPA 1983, 2006 Life Safety Rope – Light use
