Paper Title:
Structural Stability Evaluation for Lifting Lug Design of Large Marine Engine by Finite Element Analysis
  Abstract

Since most marine engines are generally very huge and heavy, it is required to keep safety from accidents in dealing them. Several types of lifting lugs have been used to assemble hundred ton–large steel structures and carry the assembled engines. Recently a few crashes have been occurred in carrying engines due to breaking down the lugs. Although the stability evaluation of the lifting lug has therefore been very important for safety, systematic design procedure of the lugs, which includes the structural analysis considering stability, has few reported. This paper describes the three dimensional finite element structural modeling for a lifting lug, the studies for determining the reasonable loading and boundary conditions, and the stability evaluation with the results of structural analyses. It should be very helpful for designing the other types of lifting lugs with safety.
