Guide for the Design of Crane Supporting Steel Structures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: RE: [Fwd: Crane Impact Loads]
Fellow engineers,
 
        For the last couple of years (or perhaps more) one of my Canadian Colleagues, Bob MacCrimmon, P.Eng., has donated a major amount of his time and skill to the development of "Guide for the Design of Crane Supporting Steel Structures".  During the preparation of the Guide several drafts were circulated and reviewed in detail by other qualified engineers including me.  This Guide is now complete; it has been published; and it is available for purchase or free download from the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC).
 
        The CISC website is http://www.cisc.ca
 
        Although the Guide is intended as a Canadian Guide, I personally forwarded all of the crane related postings from this list during the relevant period of time to Bob for his review and possible inclusion in the standard.  I therefore expect to see at least some of the SEAINT discussion reflected in the Guide.  If any of you do decide to buy or download the Guide, and wish to make any comments on it, I would be pleased to read them either privately or on the list and to forward them to Bob for his own review.
 
        For those who are not interested in this topic, please excuse me for submitting an unsolicited posting to the list.
 
Best regards to all.
 
H. Daryl Richardson

Bob,
 
        Thank you very much.  My address is
 
 
 
        I am moving to a new house but have not been given formal notice of the possession date so it will be at least 45 days from that notice.
 
        I for one would like to thank you for undertaking such a major job in developing this standard.  It will be a great help to anyone involved with cranes.
 
        By the way, I monitor a structural engineers' international bulletin board.  If you send me the exact title and where it can be purchased I will post the information.  I'm sure several people will want to get a copy.
 
Best regards,
 
Daryl

Hi, Daryl
I have a copy of the Design Guide for you, but can't find your address.
Let me know, and I'll send one along.
Regards  Bob

Bob,

        The attached question was posted to the engineering bulletin
board I monitor.  Ken Paquette will get all the help he needs from
others but I thought you might want to address the subject in your new
standard.

Best regards,

Daryl
