It appears that the carrying capacity is calculated from the Effective Length (cord and brace properties) and the Fitting Stability curve. But unsure how to action this after calculating the effective length.
Hello brilliant engineers.
How to calculate the bending stress of a lattice boom crane design?
It’s clear how to calculate a single chord in a lattice box, at least as a cantilevered tube. However, when placed in a box lattice what is the proper approach?
I’m constructing this crane in...
