Rapid Design of Gantry Crane Foundations

Construction lifting analysis is a very important type of analysis performed by structural engineers. One way to lift large and heavy items into place is through the use of a gantry crane by lifting vessels in congested petrochemical or nuclear facilities. The supporting foundations and connecting anchor bolts of gantry crane systems must be designed quickly and accurately, often with limited information.

Structural engineers can confidently and rapidly perform gantry crane foundation analysis and design by using the robust and easy to use Hexagon software solution, GT STRUDL. GT STRUDL provides multiple ways of modeling and analyzing these complex gantry crane structures quickly and also provides 64-bit solvers to enable you to use FEA to design concrete mat foundations.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how to make construction lifting analysis easier for structural engineers and reduce the risk of missing critical governing load combinations, which is also important for building, bridge, dock and harbor, transmission towers and LNG structures.
