Lifting calculation method
3. DYNAMIC FACTOR
When the movement of the precast unit is performed by lifting gear, dynamic forces that depend on the
lifting gear used, appear. The lifting classes are described in DIN 15018.

## Lifting load coefficient f at lifting speed vh

Lifting class Up to 90 m/min > 90 m/min
H1 1,1 + 0,002 vh 1,3
H2 1,2 + 0,004 vh 1,6
H3 1,3 + 0,007 vh 1,9
H4 1,4 + 0,009 vh 2,2

Lifting factor f is the acceleration factor. When lifting and carrying precast elements, the lifting load has to be
multiplied by the f factor.

Class is determined by the selected lifting system (for example, class H1 for a bridge crane, class H4 for a
fork-lift truck on an uneven ground).

The dynamic factor depends on the means used for the lifting. These factor depending on the type of lifting
system are listed on the table below.

## Lifting equipment Lifting load coefficient f

Tower crane and fixed crane 1,2 *
Mobile crane 1,4 *
Lifting and transporting on flat ground 2 - 2,5
Lifting and transporting on uneven terrain 3-4
* Lower values may be appropriate in precast plants if special arrangements are made.

For cranes with precision lifting, such as those in manufacturing plants the lifting load coefficient is
f = 1.1 1.3

## for de-mould f = 1.1

for pitch and transport f = 1.3

On site:

## for pitch/transport/install f = 1.5

when transporting suspended precast elements over uneven terrain, the lifting load coefficient
used is f > 2.

## 7. DETERMINATION OF TOTAL LOAD F TOT

Total load of precast unit for calculating the anchor is determined through the following equation:
When de-mould Ftot= G + Ha
When pitching Ftot = G
2
When de-mould and pitching Ftot = (G + Ha)
2
When transporting Ftot = G

## 8. DETERMINATION OF ANCHOR LOAD F

The load on each load bearing anchor is calculated with the following formula:

## When de-mould F = (Ftot x f x z) = (G + Ha) x f x z

n n
When pitching F = (Ftot x f x z) = (G/2 x f x z)
n n
When de-mould and pitching F = (Ftot x f x z) = [(G + Ha)/2] x z)
n n

During tilting, the concrete element remains supported on the ground, only the half of the forces have to be
taken into account.
In the situation of pitching, load carrying capacity of sockets and anchors is limited to 50% of the axial load.

## When lifting F = (Ftot x f x z) = (G x f x z)

## SITUATION AT PRECAST FACTORY:

The element will be taken out of the oiled steel formwork with a portal crane. In free storage the facade
element will be brought to a vertical position. In the meantime, the element is brought in a vertical
position, there is worked with a lifting beam to prevent that the angle to the concrete becomes smaller
than 75 ( = 15,0). Hereby the element still rests on the floor so that the T- Slot-anchors only bear half
of the weight. Only when the element is in a vertical position it can be lifted and the T-Slot-anchors will be
loaded with the full weight. That is why the bringing of the element into a vertical position is not a
normative loading. Also when de-mould and directly bringing into a vertical position with the aid of 2 T-
Slot-anchors to the front side will not give a normative loading as well.
While lifting with a lifting beam: The angle to the concrete is about 90 ( = 0), the used T-Slot-anchor
spread angle factor will be z=1,0.
Will also be taken into account: a lifting load factor f=1,3.

## SITUATION AT BUILDING SITE:

The element will be lifted with the aid of a turning crane. There is worked with 2 clutches and a lifting
beam to prevent that the angle to the concrete becomes about 60 ( = 30,0). The used spread angle
factor will be z=1,16.
Will also be taken into account: a lifting load factor of f=1,3.

## At precast factory : Ha = q x A = 1,0 x 5 x 2 = 10 kN

Force per anchor: F = (G + Ha) x f x z = (50 + 10) x 1,3 x 1,04 = 20,28 kN

At precast factory - pitching :
Force per anchor: F = (G/2 x f x z) = 50/2 x 1,3 x 1,0 = 16,25 kN

The floor element can be lifted with 4 T-Slot-anchors; Type T -25-120 in untreated, hot dip galvanized or in

The facade element can be lifted with 2 T-Slot-anchors type T -50-340 in untreated, hot dip galvanized or in
stainless carbon steel.

SITUATION AT PRECAST FACTORY: F = Ftot x f x z / n
F = (G + Ha) x f x z / n
The prefabricated element is lifted from the rough timber oiled mould with a tower crane and using 2 an-
chors. At lifting is used a lifting beam to prevent that the angle to the concrete becomes smaller
(25 + (3 than

Force par ancre: F = ____________________ = 18.2 kN
The angle to the concrete is about 90 ( = 0). The adhesion to mould factor is q=3. 2
Spread angle factor will be 1,00. Will also be taken into account: lifting load factor = 1,3.

## At precast factory : Ha = q x A = 3,0 x 5 x 2 = 6 kN

Force per anchor: F = (G + Ha) x f x z = (50 + 6) x 1,3 x 1,0 = 36,4 kN
n 2

At building site :
Force per anchor: F = (G x f x z) = 50 x 1,3 x 1,0 = 32,5 kN

The situation at the prefab factory is for the choice of the loading class normative T-Slot-anchor: T -50 kN.

CONCLUSION :

The floor element can be lifted with 2 T-Slot-anchors type T -50-340 in untreated, galvanized or in stainless
carbon steel.

Chosen positions :
Length direction: 1/5 of the length = 1,00 m from the edge.
Transverse direction: in the middle of the material thickness.

## SITUATION IN THE PREFAB FACTORY:

The prefabricated element is lifted from the rough timber oiled mould with a tower crane and us-
ing 2 anchors. At bringing in a vertical position there is worked with a spring that is used with a top an-
gle smaller than 60 ( = 30,0).The used cable angle factor will be 1,16. Will also be taken into account:
Lifting load factor f= 1,3. The adhesion to mould factor is q=3.

## SITUATION AT THE BUILDING SITE:

On site the element is lifted with a tower crane at an angle = 30,0. In this case the cable angle factor
z=1,16 and the lifting load factor is f=1,3.

## In the prefab factory: Ha = q x A = 3 x 5 x 0,4 = 6 kN

Force per anchor: F = (G + Ha) x f x z = (50 + 6) x 1,3 x 1,16 = 42,22 kN

At the building site:
Force per anchor: F = (G x f x z) = 50 x 1,3 x 1,16 = 37,70 kN
