This paper presents a review of different condition monitoring technologies for fiber ropes. Specifically, it presents an overview of the articles and patents on the subject, ranging from the early 70’s up until todaywith the state of the art. Experimental results are also included and discussed in a condition monitoring context, where failure mechanisms and changes in physical parameters give improved insight into the degradation process of fiber ropes. From this review, it is found
that automatic width measurement has received surprisingly little attention, and might be a future direction for the development of a continuous condition monitoring system for synthetic fiber ropes.
