2. Reviewing the load Radius Chart for the “Lifting Device” (Crane) taking into account the weight of crane rope over the head sheave. Wave height and period. Design Consideration for Lifting Point The design should consider but not be limited to: • • • • • • • • • • • Weight uncertainty. e. All Lifting Point design must be approved by MSI before beginning of construction. material specification and welding requirement must be clearly presented in the drawing. Eye Bolt is not to be used for lifting point. b. General All Permanently attached lifting points on all new equipment constructed after 1st March 2002 for MSI should be designed to recognize Principal National Standards or Classification Guidelines. Adequate clearances should be provided between the pad eye and the rigging. All calculation. BS5950:Part 1: 1990 Structural Steel Eurocode 3: BS ENV 1993 Design for Steel Structures.

Federal Specification RR-C-271D In short.81 m/s2 n = No. Appendix B has shown an example of the dimension of Crosby Shackle that meet the required U. of Lifting Point or Padeyes The steel grade used for pad eyes shall be clearly specified on the design drawings.

The maximum thickness of the pad eye shall be such that a total minimum gap of 5mm is maintained to avoid “binding”. the determined pad eye’s hole size and thickness with respect to shackle dimension to ensure that shackle with smaller capacity will not be able to be placed into the pad eyes. On units with a single point suspension (e. so that the resulting sling load (RSL) on each padeye will be: 3XRXg RSL = (n-1) X cos v Where v is the angle of a sling leg from vertical.g. gross mass. kg or tones G = Standard acceleration of gravity = 9.3. The load should be considered as evenly distributed between (n-1) pad eyes where n is the actual number of padeyes. Bolted on pad eyes should not be used on offshore containers.S. Preferable A516 material. Hole sizes in pad eyes should be bored or drilled to provide a diameter equal to the shackle pin diameter plus 3mm or 4% greater than the shackle pin diameter.S. 3 . The required thickness of the padeye should be based on the following shackle standard unless otherwise specified by MSI. Appendix A shown an example of the Pad Eye design from APEA. Pad Eye Design Load . Federal Specification RR-C-271D. Rating: R = Max. The thickness of the pad eye should be at least 75% of the shackle width to avoid “twisting” the shackle. the load of 3XRXg is of course taken by this single padeye. bottlerracks). the sling angle must be taken into account. This is to prevent damage to the pad eyes and over loading of the undersized shackle. U. The shackle dimension and loading is similar to the specification stated in U.Determine of required Design Load Pad Eyes should be designed for a total vertical load of: 3 X R x g. mass of cargo.
