Next to online and offline masterclasses the Eager.Academy now offers a growing range of short online videos. Each video gives you an introduction in one of the interesting subjects regarding heavy lifting and special transport. A great way to start increasing your knowledge today!
In this online video Eager.one’s senior engineer André van der Steen will present an introduction about floating crane stability. It will show you a quick-scan technique that can be used to determine the stability of a crane on a barge. This technique will be explained using the classical principle of “The Pendulum”.
Would you like to learn more about the stability of cranes on barges in less than 15 minutes? Just leave your email address below and we will send the video link to you as soon as possible.
Just a short disclaimer before you start working with the quick scan technique, presented in the video. We would like to emphasize that, for a safe lifting situation, you always need ratings. Nonetheless, this technique is very useful as quick scan for possibilities of crane/barge combinations that are available and could possibly do the job. But before you start executing the job, you must always make the ratings for the specific crane/barge combination.
We will explain more about integrated crane ratings in a next online video. And of course, in case you have any questions about floating crane stability, crane ratings and how to calculate them, please do not hesitate to contact us.
