The proven safe operation and the high availability of aerial ropeways is mainly thanks to their design. This is based on the manufacturer’s extensive experience as well as the strict application of the relevant rules and norms. In that regard, this paper describes an analysis of the haulage ropes on ropeways in case of accidental loads. In solving this problem, analyzed ropeway system with sufficient accuracy was modeled as a system with three degrees of freedom. For solving differential equations we have used the software “Wolfram Mathematica”. At the end of the paper, we discuss the results of the dynamic forces in the haulage ropes in a certain time interval, and the results of the safety factors which in this case are sufficient to ensure reliable operation of the system.
