Re: crane rails

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
BS5950, Part 1, Table 5(c) Crane Gantry Girders:

	Vertical deflection due to static wheel loads	Span/600

	Horizontal deflection (calculated on the top
	flange properties alone) due to crane surge	Span/500

Runway beams (monorails) are another story.  Let me know if you need that
information as well.

Hope that helps
