BS 2853 1957 - THE DESIGN AND TESTING OF STEEL OVERHEAD RUNWAY BEAMS
|D O W N L O A D|
This standard provides necessary requirements to runway beams constructed using the rolled steel sections. Suitability of some other materials might be considered, but the designed must note the particular mechanical properties of the materials proposed for use.
It shall be underlined that the main obligation of the tester is to get the actual runway tested as necessary; under no circumstances shall he himself that the structures and associated supports seem suitable for all loads they will be take. Sometimes, cases this may not be practicable; it will then be the responsibility of the purchaser, in consultation with the competent person, to satisfy the tester that the structure is suitable. The runway beams, i.e. constructions on which trolleys move, shall be of suitable size and adequate stress - they shall also have an even running surface.
The beams shall be adequately supported/suspended and, of course, they shall be capable of being duly maintained. When calculating stresses in the beams, the lifted load shall be taken into account as necessary, along with the weight of the beam and of the lifting appliance, force on the hand chain, and any other loads that are superimposed...
