The goal of this project was to determine the possibility and conditions of further operation of the ship-to-shore crane manufactured in 1976, based on state of metal and operational conditions.
The following work has been done:
- Inspection of the boom steel structure using coercive force method.
- Structural analysis for the crane boom for different trolley positions.
- Stress alteration measurements for the boom structure critical points.
- Residual life assessment of the crane boom using the information about the material properties degradations of metal (data in par. 1) and loading conditions (data in par. 2-3)
