Design of Underhung Hoist and Crane Girders [E18a]

Underslung crane girders 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 presentation discussed 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. A design example will be presented.
