CRANEWAY | Calculation
During the calculation, crane loads are generated in predefined distances as load cases of crane runway. The load increment for cranes moving across the crane runway can be set individually.
The program analyzes all combinations of the respective limit states (ULS, fatigue, deformation, and support forces) for each crane position. In addition, there are comprehensive setting options for specification of the FE calculation such as length of finite elements or break-off criteria.
The internal forces of a crane runway girder are calculated on an imperfect structural model according to the second-order analysis for torsional buckling.
