Rigging Design for Offshore Lifting is a handbook for the engineer who is new in the field of rigging design for offshore heavy lifting. Basic information for calculating geometries, loads, eccentricities of loads, features of rigging elements and factors of safety are all made clear.
In all examples, figures, diagrams and tables included in this book the SI-units (metric units) have been applied. Weights and loads are expressed in metric tons or KiloNewtons, linear dimensions in millimetres or meters, while stresses in component details will be expressed in Newtons per square millimetre (N/mm2) or MegaPascal (MPa) which is synonym.
Topics Include, but not limited to:
