Table 1 Review items for ground contact stability

From: Automatic design algorithms for securing the ground contact stability of mobile cranes

Step Items reviewed
Basic Items Review of the objects to be lifted Type, material and weight
Equipment Information Working radius, the maximum height of objects, crane weight and outrigger radius
Ground contact stability Review of ground contact pressure Work direction, ratio of impact load and the maximum reaction of outrigger
Reinforcement of soil bearing force (flat site) Plate type (steel, timber), rigidity of plate, soil bearing force, bending moment, and shearing force acting on plate
Reinforcement of soil bearing force (slopping site) Additional data including slope data such as slopping angle, slopping length, slopping height, and distributed load on soil
