2011-2012 Components of Crane system .

Some typical arrangements ranging from the lightest to the heaviest are shown .2011-2012 The Crane Runway Girder and the Structure Issue1: Vertical Load Transformation The support method of the crane runway girder depends on the magnitude of the reactions being transmitted.

2011-2012 The Crane Runway Girder and the Structure Issue2: Free Rotation at the Supports Free rotation at the supports of crane runway girders is important in order to prevent bending and torsional moments in the columns. .

2011-2012 The Crane Runway Girder and the Structure Issue3: Transverse Load Transformation Figure (b) illustrates the reversible strain to which the girder web is subjected .an action leading to the result shown in Figure (c) Dangerous details for lateral forces .

The top flange acts as a horizontal beam delivering its reaction to the column.2011-2012 The Crane Runway Girder and the Structure Issue3 could easily be prevented by simply connecting the top flange directly to the column. . as shown.

2011-2012 Step1: Calculate the maximum vertical Loads • The weight of the trolley (carriage) + Lifted Load (Rh) • The weight of the crane bridge (Rs) • The self weight of the crane girder & Rails (Rg) Note: The load to the crane girder will be maximum when trolley wheels are closest to the girder. .

2011-2012 Step1: Calculate the maximum vertical Loads (cont.) For Warehouse or workshop F=1.3 => the load combinations below Conservatively we can simplify the calculation . a factor of 1. .3 can be applied simultaneously to both the lifted load and to the self-weight of the crane.

5*(Rs/2+Rh*(Lc-ah)/Lc) . assuming there are two wheels on each side.) So the maximum unfactored static point load per wheel. is: Rw=1.2011-2012 Step1: Calculate the maximum vertical Loads (cont.3*0.

e.2011-2012 Step2: Calculate the Horizontal Loads • Transverse Surge load is taken as 10% of the combined weight of the crab and the lifted load. • Longitudinal Surge load of 5% of the static vertical reactions.2 (BS 5950-1:2000). crane bridge and lifted load). • Crabbing forces are obtained from clause 4. from the weight of the crab.11. Note : Horizontal loads need not to be combined together. If the crane is class Q1 or Q2. . (i. then the crabbing forces would not need to be considered.

Consider Combined Vertical and Horizontal Moments 1-Section Capacity: BS 5950-1-2000 4.8.1 For simplicity take maximum M x and M y (rather than coexistent M x and M y) and assume that the minor axis loads are carried by the plate only.

However. a useful assumption is that the maximum deflection occurs at the centre of the span when the loads are positioned equidistant about the centre.
