Cranes: Design, Practice, and Maintenance

Buy
This book looks at all types of cranes and deals with container and grab unloader cranes in some detail.

The objective has been to give a general overview of this very wide subject and then to provide positive, practical guidance to anyone involved in the design, specification, selection, or operation and maintenance of cranes.

A crane is often a very large and complex piece of equipment and this book analyses many of the individual components and design features that can be found on a typical crane. Components such as brakes, wire ropes, electrical drive systems, automatic sensors, wheels, rails, buffers, cable reels, festoons, hoppers, overload preventers, and anticollision systems are discussed in some detail along with advantages and disadvantages of various component types. This book also shows how to correctly ‘size’ and calculate a number of these components.

Furthermore, various design features and preferred solutions are discussed such as the effect of wind on cranes, design standards, welding methods, structural design and fatigue calculations and, finally, maintenance.

Anyone involved in crane specification, selection, operation, and maintenance should find the level of detail invaluable when considering potential problem areas, especially some of the ‘rule of thumb’ recommendations. Crane manufacturers facing problems of detail design will find this book useful in understanding the overall background and environment in which cranes work.
