Classification of variants of suspended ropeways lines

  • 1 Bulgarian Academy of Science, Sofia, Bulgaria


In the present work, a classification of the suspended ropeways has been made according to purpose and structural composition feature. They are mainly chair and cabin aerial ropeways. The structure of passenger ropeway structures and the standards they must meet are described in more detail. The chemical composition of the ropes, the types of tangles and the standards for their production, maintenance and operation are specified. The classification made gives a multi-criteria optimization, which aims to support the choice in the design of ropeways.
