Abstract: This report covers work conducted to evaluate the effects of specimen length on the breaking force, in an attempt to validate or refine the discard criteria of SABS 0293: 1996. Inter alia, this included an examination of the postulation of van Zyl (2000). The methodology employed was to test different length of triangular strand and non-spin rope to destruction, and to evaluate these results against SABS 0293:1996. For each rope construction, specimens were prepared both with and without cut wires, giving a total of some 26 triangular strand and five non-spin samples. Unfortunately, anomalous behaviour of the non-spin rope led to the discontinuation of these tests in favour of a greater number of triangular strand rope specimens
