Steel Wire Ropes Friction With Cast Iron Sheaves

09/21/2016 9:38 AM

I would like to know what is the friction coefficient of steel wire ropes in the grooves of traction sheaves made either of grey cast iron or ductile cast iron. The ductile cast iron could be used better in hardened sheaves but perhaps the low friction can make it not allowed.

Easily found with a web search.

Many more there, just search.

I cannot find anything about the different coefficients of cast iron and ductile iron.

Perhaps you should try to understand that they may not be that different.

Just click the link above, or type "friction coefficient of steel wire ropes in the grooves of traction sheaves" into your favorite search engine.

Of course I did it first. But I cannot find anything about cast iron and ductile iron friction coefficients.

Depends on the shape of the grooves , loading, lubrication, humidity, and other factors....

The question is not how to calculate the friction but the different "friction coefficients" of cast iron and ductile iron.

I just want the friction coefficient difference between grey cast iron ductile cast iron

He wants the SPECIFIC answer fed to him on a silver spoon.

All the tables I found are not listing different cast irons. The friction coefficient is always generally "cast iron - steel". The ductile cast irons are physically between grey cast irons and steel. So, I suppose, the friction coefficient "ductile cast iron - steel" must be between the coefficients of "grey cast iron - steel" and "steel - steel". But this is only hypothetical. I need something more concrete.

What do you hope to do with the figure if you get one? I doubt you could come up with a satisfactory design using theoretical calculations, there must be a lot of practical experience involved, including the factors mentioned by SolarEagle in #3. His link looks like a good place to start.
