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.

Normative foundations

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.
