The design and service life of the upper part of welded crane girders

The problem of fatigue in welded crane girders is introduced and its importance as a design criterion discussed. It is attributed to the local stresses generated in the top flange and upper part of the web of the girder beneath the crane wheels. Some significant stress patterns under these conditions are enumerated and discussed. A.G. Senior
