Consider Rail Section
Tips & Tricks
In CRANEWAY, the action of a rail as ‘statically effective’ or ‘statically ineffective’ is defined under ‘Rail‑Flange Connection’ in the Details dialog box. This setting controls the calculation of the load introduction length according to EN 1993‑6, Tab. 5.1.
However, the selection is irrespective of the “Consider rail section for the cross‑section properties” option in Window 1.3. If the cross‑section values including rails are determined, this has an effect on the internal forces and deformations.
