ASME B30.6-2015 pdf – Derricks.
reeving: a rope system in which the rope travels around drums and sheaves.
repetitive pickup point: when operating on a repetitive cycle operation, that part of the rope which is leaving the drum when the load is first applied to the rope.
rock anchor: an anchoring device inserted in a hole drilled into rock or concrete. The device is secured in the hole to withstand a predetermined load.
rope: refers to wire rope unless otherwise specified.
rotation-resistant rope’: a wire rope consisting of an inner layer of strand laid in one direction covered by a layer of strand laid in the opposite direction. This has the effect of counteracting torque by reducing the tendency of the finished rope to rotate.
sideloading: a load applied atan angle to the vertical plane of the boom.
sill: a member connecting the foot block and stiffleg, or a member connecting the lower ends of a double-member mast.
standby derrick: a derrick not in regular service that is used occasionally or intermittently as required.
stiffleg: a rigid member supporting the mast at the head. swing: rotation of the mast or boom for movements of loads in a horizontal direction about the axis of rotation.
tzvo-blocking: the condition in which the lower load block or hook assembly comes in contact with the upper load block or boom point sheave assembly.
