NTIS: PB 272 926 :22 pages
To provide data as a basis for proposed acceptance standards and procedures covering permanent splices in trailing cables, the Bureau of Mines conducted testing programs on the flexure life in flat types w and g DC trailing cable splices and ground conductors. Primary reliance was placed on laboratory testing, although some cross comparisons were made at manufacturers' plants and mine operations. Besides providing data for acceptance standards and procedures, results of the program should promote the general improvement of commercially available splice kits.
