RES: Overhanging Monorail

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Dear Sir


From the European Federation of Materials Handling and Storage Equipment is a norm who analyzes this subject.


FEM 9.341 –Rules for the design of series lifting equipment :Local girder stresses (Euros 5,00)


The German Norm DIN V ENV 1993-6 (Eurocode 3) give also some rules how to calculate this stress who are very similar to FEM


Best regards


Mario Velez Nauer

Assunto: Overhanging Monorail


Stephen Tanner wrote a paper in Engineering Journal (1985) regarding determination of allowable stresses for an overhanging monorail beam with a moving load on the bottom flange. He published a table showing the value of "Cb" as a function of the overhang ratio.

Is any list member aware of any further study or reasearch on the subject?
