Dynamic response analysis of heavy load lifting operation in shipyard using multi-cranes

To increase the lifting capacity and minimize the cost and time for building a ship and offshore structure, block lifting with multi-cranes becomes more and more important. In this paper, therefore, dynamic response analysis of the multi-cranes is performed for block lifting operation. By this simulation, one can confirm the dynamic effects, such as dynamic motion and load, to prevent fatal accidents during the multi-crane operation. There are several types of crane and the crane systems consist of several rigid bodies. These rigid bodies are connected with various types of joints and wire rope, and the crane system is called as multibody system. To carry out the dynamic simulation of the crane system, therefore, the program for dynamic analysis of multibody system is developed. Among the several types of the cranes, the floating crane is operated on the sea water. Therefore, the developed program includes the function for calculating the hydrostatic and hydrodynamic forces. Using the dynamics simulation program developed in this paper, a dynamic response simulation of several cases of block lifting with multi-cranes are carried out, and the simulation results are validated by comparing them with the measured data from the shipyard.
