Markus Baumgärtel Add-on Modules CRANEWAY

By default, the crane in the KRANBAHN module extends beyond the ends of the carrier. How can I stop this?


To determine the maximum support forces, it is often necessary for the crane to be able to travel beyond the support to be dimensioned. This ensures that z. B. in an asymmetrical load distribution and really every wheel crossing the respective critical point of the carrier.

However, if carrier buffers are present to prevent the crane from moving out at the left and / or right end, the distances bL and bR can be specified in the two input fields. This also reduces the number of generated load combinations. An eccentric
Arrangement of the buffers can be described via the button in a dialog (see Figure 1).

There is already an interesting webinar on the topic of " Designing crane runways according to Eurocode 3 ".
