Investigation on theoretical and experimental determination of bending over sheave fatigue lifetimes of rotation resistant steel wire ropes has been conducted. Effects of sheave size and tensile load on bending over sheave fatigue lifetimes of investigated rope have been presented. Bending over sheave fatigue life prediction according to effects of tensile load and sheave diameter has been presented by using artificial neural networks. The results point out that constructed ANN model estimations and experimental results have powerful correlation.
