Open-Loop Responses of Flexible Gantry Crane System

Edwar Yazid, Setyamartana Parman and Khairul Fuad

In this paper, dynamic behavior of non-slewing-luffing crane type, namely gantry crane is investigated by introducing the flexibility of crane framework and hoist cable. The dynamic model of such system is obtained by modeling crane framework using finite element method and gantry crane system by using Lagranges equations. The equations of motion constitute nonlinear coupling terms between crane framework and crane system. The coupled dynamic equations are solved numerically using a combinational direct integration technique, namely Newmark-β and fourth-order Runge-Kutta method. Numerical simulations are carried out to obtain the open-loop responses as functions of limited set parameters for quite simple but representative for gantry crane system.
