Understand the considerations and criteria for design of a building supporting an overhead crane.

Overhead cranes present a unique set of challenges to the building designer, who must understand crane operating forces, serviceability criteria, tolerances, and special detailing requirements in order to design a properly functioning crane runway. This material will discuss the interaction between the crane, crane runway, and the building structure, critical information and criteria that must be coordinated among the building designer, crane manufacturer, and owner, and layout of buildings that support cranes. The content will include methods for designing crane runway girders and connections, a discussion of special crane runway details, and lessons learned from construction of crane runways. This topic will present valuable information for professionals involved with the design and construction of industrial buildings and other structures that support overhead cranes.

Learning Objectives
  • You will be able to define different types of cranes, crane loads, and interface and coordination points between the Owner, Crane Manufacturer, and Building Designer.
  • You will be able to describe the principles of crane runway girder design and crane girder connection design that prevent fatigue damage from repeated loading.
  • You will be able to identify specific considerations and criteria for design of a building supporting an overhead crane runway.
  • You will be able to recognize common pitfalls in the design and construction of crane runways and buildings supporting cranes.
