The CISC Design Guide, already cited, only has about 3/4 of a page specifically dealing with underhung cranes and monorails.  They then cite 3 other publications for additional info; 1, Fisher, J.M., 1993, Industrial Buildings, AISC Design Guide 7; 2, Goldman, 1990, Design of Crane Runway Girders for Top Running and Under-Running Cranes & Monorails, Canadian Journal of Civil Engineering, Volume 17, Montreal, Quebec; 3, Weaver, 1985, Whiting Crane Handbook, 4th Ed., Third Printing (Out of Print).

If the CISC Manual is unavailable I have it in PDF, let me know and I will email it.

Subject: Monorail Design

I?m at my stupid site office and I need a design guide for monorail hoist design.  I thought there was a design guide from Canada that laid out a lot of this stuff, and I thought there was a free download.  Can someone point me in the right direction???  Thanks.
