  • Answer

    The CRANWAYS add-on module allows you to check only the main girders, but not the gantry crane itself. The head girders of the overhead crane are also not detected.

    For a overhead traveling crane, it is possible to set the parameters for the rail cross-section and an additional cross-section in window 1.3 of the add-on module.

    For a snap, define the width a and the height b. Beam cross-sections consisting of rolled or welded cross-sections can be combined with a rail or tie at will. If the rail section is too large or the beam section too small, you can only continue the input with a plausible crane rail beam section.

    Angle and U cross-sections are possible as additional cross-sections. They can be defined as the cross-sections
    Select the beam in the [Library] or use the button to define it.

    We already have an interesting webinar about " Design of crane way girders according to Eurocode 3 " on our homepage.

First Steps

First steps

We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the main programs RFEM and RSTAB.

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation

With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.

The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.

Your support is by far the best

“Thank you for the valuable information.

I would like to pay a compliment to your support team. I am always impressed how quickly and professionally the questions are answered. I have used a lot of software with a support contract in the field of structural analysis, but your support is by far the best. ”
