Hi everyone and greetings from a new member.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm looking for informations about how to estimate the wear due to friction of a rope as it passes through a pulley. Couldn't find anything really consistent about the subject. I looked at the capstan and Archard equations but didn't manage to link one to the other.

Does anyone have any ideas ?

Thanks a lot
