Abstract: This research study attempts to determine the maximum rope force in the rope of a mine winding system subsequent to a break control system failure. Four different winder ropes were evaluated: a 4000m Blair multi system; a 2300m Blair multi system; a 2500m double drum system; and a 1800m double drum system. The deeper shaft systems exhibited higher rope forces than the shallower systems. The 4000m system had the highest rope force as a friction of the rope breaking strength. A rope force of 60% of the rope breaking strength was calculated for this system. The lowest static factors of the deeper winds resulted in the higher rope forces calculated for these winding systems.
