Optimization and Realization of Bridge Girder of 320/50t-22m Quenching Crane


Article Preview

According to the application, structural features and technical requirements of 320/50t-22m large quenching crane, the bridge girder of crane were optimized. Vertical stiffness of the main beam and frame stiffness were mainly calculated, moreover, track subsidence caused by the main beam’s torsion and the fatigue stress of the main beam were checked. A guideline and reference for the future design of similar cranes were provided, thus the paper has some application value.
