New Structural Design Tool for Integration of Heavy Crane on Offshore Vessels
MetadataShow full item record
In this thesis, a simple hand calculation tool is established for heavy crane integration on offshore vessels at an early stage of design. This tool can be used for varying positions and diameters of the crane. It is verified by FEM analysis and an example case study. This hand calculation tool is demonstrated to be feasible in this condition but still has some limitations. The most important is the assumptions and simplifications and the way of thinking and solving engineering problems.
