Structural validation of an overhead crane trolley

Comprehensive calculation of an overhead crane trolley

Structural analysis of a 300 Tm overhead crane trolley

Customer requirements

  • Initially, thoroughly validate the design of a overhead crane trolley according to their calculation specifications.
  • Subsequently, complete the design with successive calculation iterations.

Project approach and development

  • 200 hours of SAMAT Engineering were required.
  • Based on the client’s 3D models, the calculation was elaborated with different scenarios defined by the client.
  • Validation of liability welds and bolted joints with tightening torque according to Eurocode.
  • Recommendations to avoid components that operated off the elastic limit of the material.

Main features

  • Movable steel structure that supports different loads with values depending on time and located in different places on the trolley, with a maximum peak of 300 Tm.
  • Need to validate the different steel types and the connections.
  • Different scenarios with a lot of configurability in the calculation.
  • A much lower calculation deadline than the standard calculation deadline was required.
