Accession Number : ADA099579 Title : Breaking-Load Evaluation of Modified Navy Crane Insulator Links. Descriptive Note : Final rept., Corporate Author : NAVAL RESEARCH LAB WASHINGTON DC Personal Author(s) : Stonesifer,F. R. Report Date : 28 MAY 1981 Pagination or Media Count : 21 Abstract : An earlier study by NRL found that the 15 long ton Navy insulator link, as manufactured in accordance with MIL-L-24410 (SHIPS), was not 'fail-safe' at crane loads of six times the rated load. This report presents results on breaking loads for a series of modified Navy links. Recommendations are presented to either change the present MIL SPEC to achieve fail-safe design or to abandon the redundant band concept and increase the safety factor on crane insulator links.
