Analysis of an existing gantry crane track on assembly base

  • 1 University of architecture, civil engineering and geodesy Sofia, Bulgaria


The assembly base is a permanent building site, where the elements of the track panel are assembled. It is characterized by large dimensions and weights of the processed parts and the final product. The report is based on observation and measurements of the existing assemble base in Kazichane and possibilities of modern computer technologies for modeling and simulation of the operation of the individual crane track elements. The unique of the studied crane track is that the rails are joined to half-sleepers lying on 1 m distance, not to a continuous beam, like in crane tracks in industry, and that the using materials are typical for the railway superstructu re.
