OIPEEC Meetings

OIPEEC organises meetings every second year to discuss issues of relevance to ropes. These meetings, which are open to non-members, alternate between a small Technical Meeting, and a much more extensive Round Table meeting. Every four years the organisation offers an award for papers written by young researchers on their investigations relating to rope endurance.

OIPEEC organises meetings every second year to discuss issues of relevance to ropes. These meetings are open to members and non-members alike. Past conferences covered varied topics such as “Simulating Rope Applications", "The Non-destructive Testing of Ropes", "Rope Terminations and Fittings", "Wire Rope Discard Criteria", "How to get the most out of your ropes“, "Trends for ropes“ and “Innovative Ropes and Rope Applications“.

Our next conference will be held jointly with The University of Stuttgart, IFT, on the topic of 'Challenging Rope Applications'. The standard of presentations and papers promises to be high and there will be a prize for the best paper.
