Description  more details

MecaLug Standard version is the least expensive version of the software that allows the user to design and analyze lifting lugs per ASME BTM-1 “Design of Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices”.  Engineers often design structures and equipment for extreme wind, seismic and other loading that may never occur; however, in the case of a lifting lug those extreme loads may very well be experienced at the beginning of the equipment life cycle, not in 20+ years down the road. The failure of a lifting lug could very likely put human life in danger in the event of a failure.  The lifting lug software allows the user to quickly and accurately analyze lifting lugs for a variety of loads.

When modelling the lifting lug the user will need to specify the following:

  • Lug Geometry
  • Cheek Plate Dimensions (If applicable)
  • Attachment dimensions (i.e. cylindrical shell, beam, etc..)
  • Shackle selection (Checks clearances and capacities)
  • Material properties
  • Loads acting in the X, Y and Z direction on the lug (Multiple load cases may be entered)

After the data is entered, the analysis can then be performed. The user can quickly determine Pass vs Fail by using our simple system where Green is Passing and Red is Failing. You can quickly survey the output and determine the problematic areas. After the design is final, you can then pick and choose which information will be used in the final report.

For a single lug analysis, this will contain a complete analysis of the lug per ASME BTH-1, considering each of the load cases entered by the user. 

For the lifting system, a complete analysis of the loads in each cable, at each crane point, and acting on the lugs.
This software Designs Lifting Lugs in various Configurations per ASME BTH-1. The Pro option also allows the user to model multiple lugs in the lifting of various 2 point and 4 point configurations that are typically found in skids, equipment and stack lifting. In the case of stack/vessel lifting, the software allows the user to rotate the structure from horizontal to vertical and evaluate the lifting lug stresses at each increment of the lifting analysis.

MecaLug comes in two versions: 1) MecaLug Standard and 2) MecaLug Pro.
