## Tower Crane Stability Checks

As per manufacturers load data sheet for Tower Crane in service and out of service condition
they considered 150KM/h wind speed and To Void the toppling counter weight of 72 ton at the
baseand 17.1 ton at the top is provided.(Please refer the attached load data sheet)
we checked the stabilty of tower crane considering wind load and counter weight of 17.1 ton.

## Tower Crane Mast

1.6 m x3xm
Total 14 Nos of
Mast use

F1 = 0

Maximum Counter weight (Concrete block) F4 = 171 KN (Please refer method statement)
Maximum wind Speed considered = 150 Km/h
Maximum Dynamic wind Pressure = 3.33 KN/m2

## Total Height of Tower Crane = 45.5 m

Tower crane Windward face of area = 1.6 x45.5 m
Total Height of Counter weight Concrete block = 3 m
Concrete block Windward face area = 0.65 x3 m
One Mast Windward face area = 1.6mx3.1m = 4.96 m2
No of Mast install =15 Nos
Total Height of Mast = 15x3.1 =46.5 m (Actual Height is 45.5) Say = 45.5
Total area of Opening in one mast = 2mx 1.64 m2 = 3.28 m2
Effective area for wind= 4.96 3.28 = 1.68 m2
Counter weight Concrete block Height = 3 m
Effective Height of tower crane for wind =45.5-3 = 42.5 m
No of Mast required for 42.5m tower crane height = 42.5/3.1 = 13.7 Say = 14
Maximum Dynamic wind Pressure = 3.33 KN/m2

## Refer the attached wind calculation

Total effective area of wind for tower crane height = 14x1.68 = 23.52 m2
Load due to wind for tower Crane height (F3) = 3.33x23.52 = 78.33 KN
Maximum Wind Load due to concrete block Height (F2) = 3.33X3X0.65 =6.5 KN

## Check for Overturning

Total Restoring Moment
= F4 X 16.8 = 171X16.8 =2872.8 KNm
Total Overturning Moment
F3X 22.75 + F2x39.9

## 78.33X22.75 + 6.5X39.9 = 2042 KNm

Safety factored for overturning =

## Total Restoring Moment /overturning Moment

= 2872.8/2042 = 1.4
