crawler crane seating,floating dock, finite element analysis
The purpose of the research study is to design and calculate seating of crawler crane for additional construction to
effective operation of floating dock. The focus of the research study is to investigate about additional reinforcement
on the seating of crawler crane. Coverage area of crawler crane is very important to support floating dock for
operational condition. Design calculations were done by finite element analysis (FEA). There are two models for
seating of crawler crane. Results of data analysis show that the additional seating with a new platform is more
advantage than the other model. It gives effective for operational condition and stronger than the other.
