Values of η vary with the solidity and spacing ratios as defined in Fig.

1 2500 t offshore crane All dimensions are given in metres or millimetres. ) Gravity is normally calculated as gG10 m͞sec2 instead of gG9,81 m͞sec2. A number of manufacturers are exampled and mentioned in this volume, this does not mean that these are particularly recommended. Nor does it mean that other equally respectable and technically sound manufacturers and equipment are not recommended. The examples are merely a matter of the author’s experience and personal familiarity. All those concerned with this type of equipment should make their own decisions as to which equipment is most suitable to fit their purpose.

This is somewhat lower than indicated by the standards. A crane builder has to state openly how the windforces on the crane have been calculated and show which motor powers and motor torques 34 Cranes – Design, Practice, and Maintenance this has led to. It must be kept in mind that it is a matter of torque which has to be delivered by the motors to the crane or to the trolley. MG N · 9550 n Nm where MGtorque in Nm on the motorshaft NGthe motor power in kilowatts nGnumber of revolutions per minute of the motor A note with regard to the standards It has been decided that the European Standards will be replaced by the CEN standards (CEN GComite´ Europe´ en de Normalisation).
