DYNAMIC LOADS ON A SHIPBOARD CRANE BOOM DUE TO SHIP MOTION

Motion of the ship produces dynamic loads in a ship-mounted crane boom. Nonlinear equations for determining these loads are developed using vector analysis and rotating coordinate frames. Once computed, the load functions are incorporated into the flexible boom matrix equation of motion. The elastic response of the boom to these time varying inertial loads can then be computed.
