Development of Structural Health Monitoring Strategy for Port Cranes using a Sensor Network

Fatigue failure is one of the most common failure modes in steel structures when subjected to variable or repeated loading. Involving repeated loading, moving, and unloading containers, the quayside ship-to-shore cranes are prone to develop fatigue-induced cracks. Non-destructive inspection methods are mostly used in port cranes to detect fatigue-induced cracks. However, the methods have uncertainties […]
