Aircraft vehicle for transporting people and cargo on a stretched wire between two points. Ropeways are established between industrial establishments or human transportation, where land and railways are difficult and costly to build. Sand, coal, ore, slag can be carried on the cable car as well as in mountainous areas. The cables carrying the cable car cab are single or double. Single cables make both transport and towing work. A cable for double cable ropeways is used for cable transportation and the other cable is used for hauling. The buckets hanging on the corrugated galleys on the top of the ropeway work as a rolling track. The cables are suspended from the pylons arranged at regular intervals. There are usually two stations, one at the bottom and one at the top. For longer distances, the ropeway cabin will be changed to continue at the stations. Towing is provided by electric or diesel engines. 40-70 is the 10 m. can go up quickly.
The ropeway is the general name given to the hanging stone which is connected between two places, which are stretched in the air, on one or several steel ropes. The ropeways work with the lift principle, but they can reach very high points from the ground floor, like a helicopter, especially when crossing the valley.
The ropeway is built between the power heights. There are also ones available on a sea or a throat. The places where the ropeways are built are very difficult or too expensive transportation by land, iron and sea. In such areas, the ropeway established between two points is used to carry out human or material transmission. The ropeways where people are transported consist of passenger cabinets hanging on steel ropes.
The ropeway systems, which are generally single direction and single rope circulation, are designed with two or more steel ropes. The other rope (s) of a rope is a carrier rope.
The ropeway systems are separated from each other by means of a clamp (Grip) which is connected to the rope.
Babylift (starting lift)
Teleski Maximum speed 2,4 m / s
Chairlift (2 / 4 / 6 with seats) Maximum line speed 3,0 m / s per second
Detachable Chairlift with automatic clamp Maximum line speed 5 m / s
Gondola with Automatic Clamp (Detachable Gondola) Maximum line speed 6 m / s
Group Gondolas (Pulsed Movement Aerial Ropeways) The highest line speed 7 m / s is usually set to speed at 3,0 m / s, since these systems are installed on short distances.
Var-Gel Type Ropeways These systems are generally used in terrain conditions and wide valleys where direct assembly is difficult. The highest line speed is 12,0 m / sec.
Combined Systems The basis of these systems is automatic clamping. General structures are designed according to chairs and gondola.
Multi-rope systems, in general, form the Var-Gel type ropeways. With a hammer and several carrier ropes, the system is used for gondola ropeway systems where the wind is high.
Some mines also use ropeway systems for material transportation.
The longest cable car in the world, the Norsjö Cable Car, operates in the city of Norsjö, Sweden, between Örträsk and Mensträsk. The length of this line established in 1942 is 13,2 km. The journey time is 1,5 time.
Turkey's longest gondola lift cable car to Uludag, with Teferrüç district in bursa'dadır.yıldırım' was established between the xnumx't Sarıalanyayla in Uludag. With the transfer from Kadiyayla station, the total length of 1963 meters is. The journey starting at an altitude of 4766 m ends at an altitude of 374 m after about 20 minutes. This also Turkey's first cable car lifts.
