Acceptance Criteria and Codes Plant Design Specification & Response Spectra AISC Manual of Steel Construction, Allowable Stress Design ASME NOG-1, Rules for Construction of Overhead and Gantry Cranes ASME B&PVC Code, Section III, Division 1, Sub-Section NF CMAA-70, Crane Manufacturers Association of America, “Specifications for Top Running Bridge & Gantry Type Multiple Girder Electric Overhead Traveling Cranes”

15 15 Westinghouse Non-Proprietary Class 3© 2012 Westinghouse Electric Company LLC. All Rights Reserved. Service Condition Analyzed for all service loads without seismic excitation and qualified per CMAA-70 Loadings shall include Inertia of mass loads from movement of Crane, Trolley, Hoist, and Lifted Load Loadings due to Wind, Skewing, Collision, Platform, and maximum critical hook loads shall be considered when applicable.

16 16 Westinghouse Non-Proprietary Class 3© 2012 Westinghouse Electric Company LLC. All Rights Reserved. Seismic Condition Analyzed for all normal operation deadweight loads acting simultaneously with seismic excitation from Safe Shutdown Earthquake (SSE) Response spectrum method shall be used –Proper Combination of modes of seismic vibration –Proper Combination of directional seismic responses –Proper Damping factors

17 17 Westinghouse Non-Proprietary Class 3© 2012 Westinghouse Electric Company LLC. All Rights Reserved. Special Modeling Technique Sliding or rolling must be considered to prevent overturning Force required to cause sliding or rolling must be calculated Each crane drive wheel is restrained in the movement direction with a specified spring stiffness The spring stiffness is derived by iteration An initial stiffness is assumed; the value is changed & analysis rerun until the wheel seismic load equals the sliding/rolling force.

18 18 Westinghouse Non-Proprietary Class 3© 2012 Westinghouse Electric Company LLC. All Rights Reserved. Required Crane Evaluations Primary Evaluations: Wheel Reactions, Displacements, Accelerations, Structural Steel Stresses, Plate Element Stresses Secondary Evaluations: Welds, Beam Connection Plates, Beam Flange/Web Deformations, Stiffener Plates, Bolts, and Wire Ropes

20 20 Westinghouse Non-Proprietary Class 3© 2012 Westinghouse Electric Company LLC. All Rights Reserved. Bolt Evaluations The maximum forces and moments for each connection type can be extracted from GTStrudl types of major bolted connections in the FHM Can be grouped in typical connection types Each connection type has a different bolted configuration pattern due to size, number, and spacing of bolts Each configuration has different sectional properties required for calculating max shear and tension stresses Bolts must be qualified to applicable code

21 21 Westinghouse Non-Proprietary Class 3© 2012 Westinghouse Electric Company LLC. All Rights Reserved. Slack Rope Evaluations If the lifted load has an upward seismic acceleration greater than 1 g, the hoist wire rope may need to be evaluated for the slack rope condition ASME NOG-1 provides design guidance for performing this evaluation The maximum slack rope allowable is based on a percentage of the rope breaking strength A non-linear time history analysis is normally required for performing the slack rope analysis The analysis is only used for evaluating the rope for the most probable lifted load condition
