# PADEYE CALCULATION

DESIGN ASSUMPTIONS
1 Materials for padeye main plates and attachments shall have min. 60ksi yield strength.
.
2 Lifting is done using Crosby Shackles. G 209 S209-2160 with working load limit 13.5 MT

## 3 Dia of sling used = 40mm

4 Permissible stresses in fillet weld has been considered as the min. of 0.3 Fu and 0.4 Fy
where Fu= 517 Mpa (Min. Tensile Strength, API RP-2A WSD) and Fy = 412Mpa (60 ksi),
respectively

Design loads :

## Maximum load in sling ( from SACS Lifting Analysis, Without

= 140.0 kN 14 MT
C.O.G Shifts, DAF,SKL & consequence factor for padeye)

## Skew Factor = 1.1

Dynamic Amplification Factor DAF = 1.15

## C.O.G Factor = 1.1 (Max. sling load has been considered,

considering cog shift)
Tilt Factor = 1.03
Yaw Factor = 1
Static load for sling & shackle selection = 200.6543 kN 20.07 T
Factor of Saftey for Minimum Breaking Strength = 3 (0027/NDI Rev 3)

## Consequence factor for padeyes (Strength check) = 1.35 (0027/NDI Rev 3)

Hence, design load for padeye, F = = 27.09 T (inclusive of DAF and CF)

= 270883.31 N
Using Crosby Alloy Bolt-Type Shackles G 2160 (Specification Attached)
Working Load Limit= = 13.5 T
Ultimate Load= = 67.5 T SAFE
Dia. Body G= = 6.38 in. 162.05 mm
Dia.Pin Dp= = 1.5 in. 38.10 mm (Cast Alloy Steel)
Inside Length of Pin(Jaw Width) Lp = 2.24 in. 56.9 mm
PADEYE GEOMETRY
Diameter of Eye Dh
1.05Dp = 40 mm
Dp+5mm = 43 mm
Therefore Diameter of eye(min. of above two) = 40 mm
Radius of Eye Rh = 20.0 mm

## Main Plate + Cheek Plate + Centraliser Plate Thickness (Tt)

Tt Should be Approximately equal to 0.9 Lp
0.9 Lp = 51.21 mm
So Provide 45 mm Thickness
Lp-Tt = 11.9 Less than 25mm. So O.K
Main Plate Thickness(Tmp)
Main Plate Thickness= 0.25 to 0.4Dp
Say 0.25 Dp 9.525 mm
Say 12 mm

## Cheek Plate Thickness(Tcp)

Cheek Plate Thickness= 0.15 to 0.3Dp
Say 0.25 Dp 9.525 mm
Say 10 mm

## Centraliser Plate Thickness(Tcenp)

Total Thickness to be provided= 45 mm
So Centrasiler Plate Thickness = 6.5 mm
Say 5 mm

## Total Thickness Provided=Tmp+2xTcp+2xTcenp = 42 mm

Main Plate Radius Rmp
Radius of Main plate Rmp= 1.5 to 1.75 Dp
Say 1.65 Dp 62.865 mm
Say 65 mm
Cheek Plate Radius Rcp

## Rcp= Rmp - Tcp = 55 mm

Say 53 mm

Check 1 :-
Rmp - Cheek plate Weldment(lcp)-5mm= = 54
Cheek plate Weldment(lcp)= = 6 (Assumed)
Can Provide 53 mm radius
Check 2 :-
0.5 Tcp = = 5
0.75 Tcp = = 7.5
Weld Size mentioned above is o.k here

## Centraliser Plate Radius (Rcentp)

Radius of Centraliser plate Rcentp= = 150 mm
Greater than eye radius so O.K
SCHEMATIC ARRANGEMENT OF PADEYE

Main Plate Thickness= = 12 mm
Main Plate Radius= = 65 mm
Cheek Plate Thickness= = 10 mm
Cheek Plate Radius= = 53 mm
Cheek Plate Weldment= = 6 mm
Centraliser Plate Thickness= = 5 mm
Centraliser Plate Radius= = 150 mm
Dia. Of Sling d= = 40 mm (Assumed)
Height of Shackle E= = 5.24 in.
(Refer Crosby Catalog
133.096 mm for G2160 )
Sling Selection
Min. Breaking Strength For Sling = 60.2 T
Assumed Allowable Tensile Stress = 550 Mpa
So, Area Of sling = 1095 mm2
Dia of Sling = 37 mm (Approximately)
However dia of sling provided is 40 mm . Hence O.K
Clearance Check
Clearance distance from pin centre to end= = 152.146 mm
Actual Distance required= Rmp+ Dia of sling= = 105 mm
Clearance available= = 47.146 mm
Clearance Required= 0.5d= = 20 mm Hence O.K

Design Of Padeye

Padeye Strength Check
Eye Local Stresses:-
Hertz Pressure Pu=0.591*sqrt(F*E/Tt*KB) <=
2.5 Fy (Roark Formulae - Table 33-2c)
where, KB = Dp*Dh/(Dh-Dp) = 802.1

## Tt = Total thickness of padeye around

=
the eye
=Tmp + 2*Tcp = 32 mm
E = Youngs modulus = 200000 Mpa
Fy = Material yield stress = 412 Mpa
F = Max in-plane force in the direction of =
the sling 270883.31 N
Hence, Pu = = 858.623815597 Mpa
and 2.5 Fy = = 1030 Mpa
I.R = 0.834

## Bearing Stress Pb =F/(Tt*Dp) = 222.181192585 Mpa which is < 0.9Fy, hence OK

0.9Fy = 370.8 Mpa
I.R = 0.5991941548

## fv = F/S <= 0.4Fy

Where, S = 2[(Rmp-Rh)Tmp + 2(Rcp-Rh)Tcp]= = 2400.00
fv= = 112.868045833 Mpa
and 0.4Fy = = 164.8 Mpa
I.R = 0.6848789189
Welds :
A. Weld check between inner cheek plate and main plate : (Considering the effect of cheek plate only)

## Force for one cheek plate, F'

= Fx Tcp / (Tmp+2Tcp) = 84651.034375
Permissible Stress In Weld
Material Grade = 60 ksi (API SPEC 2W GRADE 60)
= 412 MPa
Minimum Tensile Strength Fu = 517 MPa (Ref: API RP 2A-WSD)
Strength of weld shall be min. of
1)0.3 x Fu = 155.1 MPa
2)0.4 x Fy = 164.8 MPa
Allowable stress = = 155.1 MPa
Hence, weld area required, = = F'/ allowable stress
= 546 mm2

## = (Since half the weld length

Effective weld length, l' = (2Rcp) / 2 is effective)
= 166.5 mm
Hence, weld size =weld area/ (0.707 x weld length) = 4.64 mm
Provide 6 mm Weld
