Consideration of Eccentric Wheel Loading in Fatigue Design

Tips & Tricks

In CRANEWAY, the eccentric wheel loading of 1/4 of the rail head width is used for the fatigue design of welds as well as for craneway girder design according to the National Annex of Germany and as from the damage class of S3.

The possible interpretation of DIN EN 1993‑6, Chap. 9.3.3 (1), that this eccentricity can be only applied to the web design, is incorrect according to Standards Committee NA 005‑08‑01 AA - Craneways (SpA to CEN/TC 250/SC 3).
