There is very little published information available on the subject of the design/analysis of

lifting lugs. Therefore, design engineers are left without adequate technical guidance on

this subject. The following provides a systematic method.

This failure mode involves bearing failure at the pin/lifting lug interface. Often the pin

diameter is much less than the hole diameter. Let us assume a pin diameter 1/2" less than

the hole diameter. Using a bearing stress of 0.9 F

This failure mode involves tension failure on both sides of the hole. Therefore, the ultimate

Rule_2 "OK" Rule_2 if e 0.67 d "OK" , "NG" , ( ) :

The dimension "e" must be greater than or equal to 0.67 times the hole

diameter, d.

Thus, e > 0.67 * d

For this example, e = 1.125" and since it is greater than 0.67*d which is

0.8375". Rule 2 is satisfied.

Rule_4 "OK" Rule_4 if t 0.5 in "OK" , "NG" , ( ) :

Rule_3 "OK" Rule_3 if t 0.25 d "OK" , "NG" , ( ) :

In this example, since 0.25 x 1.25 = 0.3125" and the thickness of the lug is 1.25",

this failure mode does not control.

This failure mode involves the out-of-plane buckling failure of the lug. Per Ref. 1, this failure

is prevented by ensuring a minimum thickness of lug of 0.5 inches and 0.25 times the hole

diameter d.

This failure mode involves shear failure as the pin tries to push out a block of steel through

for the pin. Thus:

Combining these three requirements into a single "formula" we have:

Since 1.25 times "a" is 1.25 x 1.125 = 1.406" and is greater than the diameter of hole of

1.25". This requirement is not satisfied. Therefore, the tensile capacity of the lug must

be based on a reduced "a" dimension which will satisfy this requirement.

This requirement states that the diameter of the pin hole shall not be less than 1.25 times

distance from the edge of pin hole to the edge of plate, i.e. dimension a.

Requirement 3:

Since 4 times thickness is 4 x 1.25" = 5" and is greater than 1.125". This requirement is

satisfied.

This requirement states that the distance transverse to the axis of a pin-connected plate

from the edge of the pin hole to the edge of the member, i.e. dimension a, shall not exceed

4 times the thickness at the pin hole.

Requirement 2:

Since 2/3 of A

2

is 1.875 in

2

which is more than A

1

, this requirement is not satisfied.

Therefore, the tensile capacity of the lug must be based on a reduced "a" dimension

which will satisfy this requirement.

Requirement 1:

The above section of AISC Code has three separate geometry checks that can be applied

to the lifting lug. If these requirements are not met, a smaller value for "a"

should be used for the calculation of tensile capacity, a

This is typically the weak link in an overhead lifitng lug, due to off-set loading. In general,

the lug is rarely directly over the item to be rigged. Conservatively, let us assume that the

off-set is a maximum of 45 degrees in the plane of the lug and 20 degrees normal to the

plane of the lug. The additional loads due to off-set can be determined by statics to be as

follows:

1. As discussed in Reference 1, using a "factor" of 1.8 on AISC allowables results in a factor of safety

of 5 for A36 steel. This is in line with ASME B30.20 which requires a design factor of 3 on yield

strength and ANSI N14.6 which requires a design factor of 3 on yield strength and 5 on ultimate

strength. This is also in line with the load ratings for other components of the lifting assembly such as

slings, shackles, etc.

References:

If additional capacity is desired, the angles and can be restricted as needed to increase the

capacity of the lug. In the above example, if these angles are made equal to zero, the maximum

capacity will increase to 16.875 kips.
