# Abstract

Independent wire rope core (IWRC) is one of the fundamental components of complex wire ropes. It is a complex geometry and constructed by wrapping wire strands over a straight wire strand. The outer wires of the IWRC are double helical shaped feature which can be only modeled using special treatment. The aims of this paper are to introduce a new technique of modeling wire rope with IWRC and to compare numerical results obtained from this model with available results in the literature. Therefore the model generation for a simple straight strand is explained and accuracy of this model is validated. Furthermore this modeling procedure is adapted to whole wire rope structure considering double helical geometry concept. The proposed rope model gives remarkable results by means of wire by wire analysis scheme. This model is found easier and more effective. The results show good agreement with other available results but with a simpler and more practical approach.Independent wire rope core (IWRC) is one of the fundamental components of complex wire ropes.
