Abstract Synthetic fiber ropes, which are lightweight and have high tensile strength and flexibility, have attracted attention as an alternative to stainless steel wire rope.〓This study clarifies various physical characteristics of synthetic fiber ropes to design a tendon-driven mechanism and this paper focuses on creep of ropes. 〓We first designed and constructed a creep testing machine for ropes. 〓Second, we performed experiments with three types of synthetic fiber ropes and one stainless steel wire rope. 〓As a result, in stainless steel wire rope, creep was not observed. 〓In addition, Polyarylate(PAR) fiber rope and Poly-phenylene-Benzobisoxazole(PBO) fiber rope have much higher creep resistance than Ultra High molecular weight Polyethylene(UHPE) fiber rope.
