Underslung crane runways are often utilized in manufacturing plants and have particular design challenges including member continuity, laterally unsupported flanges and fatigue of the support member just to name a few. This live webinar will discuss the challenges encountered; solutions for designing the structural support structures; the connections between the supporting members and the runway girder; and the runway girders themselves for underslung hoists and crane runways. The design for curved monorail support beams will also be covered. These monorail beams are often hung under jack trusses, secondary trusses or open web steel joists and special design requirements need to be included in the design of these components, including fatigue details for the connections and support members. A design example will be presented.

The seminar is presented by William Kussro of Giffels LLC / IBI Group.

This presentation was developed as part of AISC's Live Webinar series. Upon completion of the seminar, the attendee will be able to purchase an online quiz based on information given in the seminar. When she/he passes the quiz with a score of 70% or higher, the attendee will be able to print a CEU/PDH certificate for 1.5 contact hours.
