Crane Runway Earthquake Loads - Urgent !

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Dear Members,

In order to design a Crane Runway I need to include the Earthquake load among other loads.

Particulary, I need to know how much of the lateral  force I must consider in one side ( 50 %  or 100 % ).  I suppose it depend on the vertical aceleration and the wheel system.

But what is recomedable and comun ?
I beg your prompt answer.
Thanks,
