Cranes are used in manufacturing facilities, throughout nuclear sites, and in many other applications for various heavy-lifting purposes. Unfortunately, the flexible nature of cranes makes fast and precise motion of the payload challenging and dangerous. Certain applications require the coordinated movement of multiple cranes. Such tasks dramatically increase the complexity of the crane operation. This paper studies the dynamic behavior of a dual-hoist bridge crane. Simulations and experiments are used to develop an understanding of the dynamic response of the system. Various inputs and system configurations are analyzed and important response characteristics are highlighted.
