Tips & Tricks
In CRANEWAY 8, the support forces are displayed in the result window 2.3 ‘Support Forces’. There are three display options available.
"All" displays all support forces of load combinations. In addition, the load case 2 Wind Load is displayed, so you can calculate back the support forces on individual components (crane, permanent load and wind).
"Max/min only" displays only the extreme values of support forces in corresponding directions.
"Only max/min advanced" displays the extreme values of horizontal support forces (with components due to crane and wind) and vertical support forces (with components due to crane and permanent).
The support forces represent characteristic values including dynamic factors. Therefore, you can use the values directly in the design of the structure.
