I would like to design a suspension crane with the CRANEWAY add-on module. Where are the design points 0, 1 and 2 for the stress analysis on the lower flange and for the fatigue design?


The design points in CRANEWAY have been transferred according to the standard. The stresses are calculated for the following locations:

  • Design point 0

    Section of flange at the web edge or at the start of the rounding

  • Design point 1

    Flange at load application point (this can be checked as wheel spacing in Window 1.4)

  • Design point 2

    Flange edge
These points are not displayed in the cross-section graphic in the CRANEWAY program. However, there is always a stress point at the design points 0 and 2 for which result values can be directly output.
