Structural proof of crane runway girders
Challenges in the structural proof of crane runways
From a static point of view, crane runway girders are challenging. For example, the crane bridge represents a traveling load, the crane runway girders are prone to lateral torsional buckling and have a scheduled torsion, there are dynamic effects due to sudden lifting or lowering of the load, and depending on the load, fatigue must be proven. All in all, a statically complex load condition consisting of transverse forces, biaxial bending and torsion arises in crane runway girders.
We provide all necessary verification for crane runway girders based on the current Eurocodes DIN EN 1991-3 and DIN EN 1993-6 For the structural proof, we have current software that is specially designed for the structural analysis of crane runways.
We offer the following services for the structural proof of crane runway girders. We are of course always open to different questions:
- Structural proof of existing crane runway girders;
- structural proof of new crane runway girders;
- expertises for crane runway girders.
