Guidance for Barge-Mounted Mobile Cranes
Available from Stewart Technology Associates
We perform Crane Basic Stability Calculations. We calculate backwards stability and determine if required margins are met.
The combine afloat stability of the crane-barge combination is assessed.
We de-rate the manufacturer's charts for machine list and reach, both influenced by the hydrostatic stability of the barge-crane unit. We further de-rate for wind speed and show limiting allowable wind speeds for different lift conditions.
