- 1 Faculty of Mechanical Engineering –University of Prishtina, Kosovo
This paper deals with Dynamic analysis of Gantry Crane using Method of Schematic Design which implements schemes with block diagrams to analyze machines and their parts during work process. This procedure is new to analysis of Gantry crane dynamics and consists of crane model development of interconnected elements that represents crane parts, 3-D visualization and motion of crane. Dynamic analysis will be carried through simulations and solution of Euler differential equations of second order gained from schematic design. Simulations will be planned and applied for regulation of travel motion with hanging load. Diagrams with results of main dynamic and kinematic parameters will be presented for main parts of crane as the solution results of the analyzed system. Results gained will be used to get conclusions about dynamic behavior, optimal motion regulation and safety during work. Analysis will be done using modeling and simulations with computer application MapleSim.
