About the Course

Advanced Rigging Physics 2: Equipment takes a detailed look at the equipment used by the roping technician. It applies the language and understanding of the first course of the Advanced Rigging Physics series, Advanced Rigging Physics 1: Vectors & Mechanical Advantage, to connectors, cordage, knots, and the way forces are absorbed during falls. Students will also learn about Tension Load Cells so that they can better understand their selection and use.

    Rigging Lab Academy Instructor | Founder of RopeLab

    Richard Delaney

    Richard, the founder of RopeLab, aims to promote a better understanding of the fundamental principles underpinning the craft of the rope technician. He originally created RopeLab to build a greater understanding of the physics of roped systems. Seeing value in ideas being shared across industries, Richard looks at the physics of roped systems and equipment that may be used in a range of situations and industries. Climbers, rope technicians, riggers, slackliners, arborists and rescue operators all will find useful information here.Through the countless tests that he conducts to generate data that he can then apply to real working situations, his reports detail the methodology and results of each test conducted and he encourages critical assessment. Richard also delivers regular workshops which aim to facilitate learning in a social and practical environment. These workshops encourage critical thinking based in an understanding of fundamental principles rather than rote learning. Experience across a range of industries gives Richard the capacity to tailor workshops to specific environments.
