Lift Beams

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello,

I am designing a lift beam for a client that will have 1 lift point in at 
the midspan of the beam going to the crane and two pickup points, one at 
each end of the beam.  Therefore it looks roughly like:

                            *
  _____________________________________________________
  *                                                   *

Lovely sketch huh?  Are there any guidelines for determining the unbraced 
length of the lifting beam?
