RE: bridge crane system design example

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I will assume that you are talking about the design of crane runway systems and supporting structures so....the following are some of my initial thoughts on good resource information:
1.  AISC - Steel Design Guide Series 7 - Industrial Buildings - Roofs to Column Anchorage - by James Fisher
You will also find helpful information in:
1.  AISE 13 - Specification for the Design and Construction of Mill Buildings
2.  CMAA 70 - Specifications for Top Running/Gantry Bridge Cranes
3.  Crane Runway Systems  - by John C. Rowswell
4.  AISC Engineering Journel - Tips for Avoiding Crane Runway Problems - David T. Ricker
Hope these help.

Has anybody seen a good design example for bridge crane system in literature? Where design criteria can be found?
