Burst testing Binding Knots?
« on: May 31, 2020, 09:15:27 AM »
If anyone had the gear or ideas,
i always think burst testing Binding Knots might reveal some things, true some theories?
>>Less impact of change thru the unilaterally loaded structure
Even a draw test w/locking parts solidly seated to host , rope as big open chain link/soft shackle
>>But not too harsh a bending
>>to maintain only testing Binding not sharper arcs
.
Different than Bend and Hitch tests of linear force from outside knot brought into degrading arcs conversion
>>Binding test would start inside knot already, and load evenly thru layers, not receding force degraded
>>Binding goes to radial arc knot internals as any other, but also starts there so no conversions
>>nor impact waves of change from conversions echoing thru
True Bending would be pure study, of the knot defining arc only (in round burst test)
.
Even if not use the data outright
>>is such a contrasting definition to Hitch/Bend, as to give them more 'color'/ definition
>>and a missing piece in rope work science not looked at?

Hello KC,

While I am not a moderator... I would point out that this site is for actual knot test results.

Your post has absolutely zero tests results.

Maybe you accidentally posted here instead of in knotting concepts & explorations?
