Abstract

In the fatigue analysis of crane runway beam with welded cross-section, the main part of the damage is coming from those stresses that are parallel with the longitudinal axis of the beam. Because of the eccentric running of the crane, lateral stresses appear around the welds, which can be of similar magnitude as the longitudinal stresses. The aim of the present work was to study this stress concentration with numerical analysis, and to perform damage simulation. The load histories were generated by Gaussian distribution. The calculated damage value at he current stage of the research is only suitable for comparative analysis.
