Stress analysis of crane runways and welds
Fatigue design of crane runways and welds
Deformation analysis
Plate buckling analysis for wheel load introduction
Stability analysis for lateral torsional buckling according to the second-order analysis of torsional buckling (1D FEA element)

For design according to Eurocode 3 the following National Annexes are available:

United Kingdom BS EN 1993-6/NA:2009-11 (United Kingdom)
DIN EN 1993-6/NA:2010-12 (Germany)
Belgium NBN EN 1993-6/ANB:2011-03 (Belgium)
Cyprus CYS EN 1993-6/NA:2009-03 (Cyprus)
CSN EN 1993-6/NA:2010-03 (Czech Republic)
SFS EN 1993-6/NA:2010-03 (Finland)
NF EN 1993-6/NA:2011-12 (France)
UNI EN 1993-6/NA:2011-02 (Italy)
LST EN 1993-6/NA:2010-12 (Lithuania)
NEN EN 1993-6/NB:2012-05 (Netherlands)
Norway NS EN 1993-6/NA:2010-01 (Norway)
Sweden SS EN 1993-6/NA:2011-04 (Sweden)

In addition to the National Annexes (NA) listed above, you can also define a specific NA, applying user-defined limit values and parameters.

General data

Geometry, material, cross-section, action and imperfection data is entered in clearly arranged input windows:

Quick and comfortable data input
Definition of support conditions based on various support types (hinged, hinged movable, rigid, and user-defined as well as lateral on upper or bottom flange).
Optional selection of warping restraint
Variable arrangement of rigid and deformable support stiffeners
Possibility to insert releases

CRANEWAY Cross-Sections

I-shaped rolled cross-sections (I, IPE, IPEa, IPEo, IPEv, HE-B, HE-A, HE-AA, HL, HE-M, HE, HD, HP, IPB-S, IPB-SB, W, UB, UC, and other cross-sections according to AISC, ARBED, British Steel, Gost, TU, JIS, YB, GB, and others) combinable with section stiffener on the upper flange (angles or channels) as well as rail (SA, SF) or splice with user-defined dimensions.
Unsymmetrical I-sections (type IU) also combinable with stiffeners on the upper flange as well as with rail or splice.


It is possible to consider actions of up to three simultaneously operated cranes. You can simply select a standard crane from the library or define it manually:

Number of cranes and crane axles (maximum of 20 axles per crane), center distances, position of crane buffers
Classification in damage classes with editable dynamic factors according to EN 1993-6, and in lifting classes and exposure categories according to DIN 4132
Vertical and horizontal wheel loads due to self-weight, lifting capacity, mass forces from drive as well as skewing
Axial loading in driving direction as well as buffer forces with user-defined eccentricities
Permanent and variable secondary loads with user-defined eccentricities


The imperfection load applies in compliance with the first natural vibration mode – either identically for all load combinations to be designed or individually for each load combination as mode shapes may vary depending on the load.
Comfortable tools available for scaling the mode shapes (rise determination of inclination and precamber).
