Stress and strain analysis that occurs in the structure of a section and in its lifting installation, during the lifting and turning maneuvers
During the shipbuilding processes carried out in the shipyards, there is a need to transport the sections of ship structure, from the place where they are built to the assembly location. When the shape and structure of the sections allow, they are built in an inverted position, and after finishing all the works that can be performed in this type of placement, the section will have to be turned to continue the section building process and subsequent the assembly. Loads that appear in the structure during these maneuvers are different from those that appear during the operation and from those for which calculations were made at the stage of the initial project. Therefore, it is necessary to calculate them and design a lifting / turning installation, which should also contain stiffening elements where required, in order to prevent both accidents and deformations or detachments that could occur at the section level. From this necessity appears the plan generically called "lifting plan" and which contains the installations, the schemes, the necessary instructions to remove the units from the section building hall, turn it to the gantry cranes and brought into the mounting position.
