MARINE CRANE DYNAMIC ANALYSIS
The Civil Engineering Laboratory has developed structural analysis techniques to study both linear and nonlinear behavior of cranes operating in a marine environment or under other dynamic conditions. The equations take into account such variables as applied loads, boom position, boom length, and boom suspension and can be expanded to include hoist accelerations and rotational effects. Combining these equations with structural system equations results in a complete dynamic analysis. These analytical methods apply to containerships offloading in the open sea or to cranes used by marine construction, shipbuilding or offshore petroleum industries.
