... brittleness). Many of the Earth’s wonder bridges are suspension bridges held up by steel wire ropes. High compressive strength is needed to carry the significant Hertzian stresses encountered in rolling-element bearings. Some jet engine bearings are life tested at Hertz stress of 388,000 psi (2,600 MPa...

... into cable. Such pearlitic steel cable is used in wire rope, which has tensile strengths to 2200 MPa (320 ksi). Quenched and tempered steel wire can be made to this strength level, but experience has found the pearlitic wire to be tougher, and for that reason, it is the wire of choice for such industrial...
