    Hi! launches the pad-eye design spreadsheet

    This excel spreadsheet helps design a pad-eye for Lifting or Marine Transport Operations/Lashing design. It can also be used to verify an existing pad-eye for sling loads.

    A simple pad-eye without brackets, and with one cheek plate can be designed/tested.

    A video demonstration of the spreadsheet is here:

    It rigorously calculates all the stresses coming onto the pad-eye, viz.

    1. Geometry check: Main plate radius, Shackle clearances

    2. Stress Check for Pin Hole (Tensile, Bearing, Shear, Hertz stress)

    3. Stress check for Base Plate (Tensile, Bending, Shear, Von Mises and Combined)

    4. Stress Check for Base Weld (Tensile, Bending, Shear, Total Stress)

    5. Shear Stress Check for Cheek Plate Weld

    Immensely useful for Marine Operations. It is based on the standard references:



    Nobledenton Guidelines for Marine Lifting and Lowering Operations 0027/ND.
