CRACKING OF WELDED CRANE RUNWAY GIRDERS: PHYSICAL TESTING AND COMPUTER SIMULATION.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Preliminary results of an AISE sponsored research project to provide more accurate methods for predicting stress in the weld area between the top flange and web are described. Based on 3-dimensional finite and boundary element analyses in combination with full-scale tests, two equations predict the vertical normal stress on the top of the web and the bending moment transmitted to the top of the web due to a moment applied about the axis of the flange from, for example, eccentrically located rails. Parameters investigated include member dimensions, rail pads, vertical stiffeners and lateral loading.
