Tower Crane, Ansys Analysis, Static Analysis, Attachment Spacing


In order to strengthen the safety management of tower cranes on construction sites and prevent accidents caused by the deformation of the standard section of tower cranes during the construction process, in response to the stability of the WA6013-6A tower crane operation process, the static analysis of the standard section structure and attachment method during the lifting process of tower cranes was carried out using Ansys software, and the maximum displacement and stress-strain situation of tower cranes with different tower crane heights and attachment distances were obtained. The results show that the more attached the tower crane is, the higher the standard section stress dispersion and the continuous decrease in effective stress; The smaller the distance between connecting walls, the more connecting components there are, the smaller the standard deformation rate of tower cranes, and the better the stability of tower cranes.
