Abstract
Operators of long-span overhead cranes can be subjected to high levels of vibration when the control cab is located on the trolley or at the centre of the bridge. This can cause reduced comfort fatigue or injury to an operator. The paper describes a program to solve this problem in two long-span slab handling cranes at a major steel plant. The use of highspeed video motion analysis equipment to record the effects of a dropped test load is highlighted in the solution of the problem. 1.
