Research objective: assessment of the impact of crane loading on safe operation of building by using probabilistic methods; taking into account accumulation of damage in building’s structural elements occurring during operation period. Materials and methods: current computational schemes exploit procedures that do not take into consideration all external effects and changes in structures occurring during operation period of an industrial building. They do not provide algorithms for assessment of spatial response of building’s structures if probabilistic methods are used. Results: the experimental and theoretical research carried out by the author resulted in more precise definitions for computational models and for computational methods of analysis of industrial buildings under the action of various crane loads, including those that are not considered by regulatory documents. The suggested models and methods will enable us to design bearing structures of frameworks in accordance with their real operating conditions. The data obtained in a number of full-scale experiments lead to the conclusion that the amplitudes of vibrations caused by lateral forces when the overhead crane travels with a skew are significantly larger than the amplitudes observed during deceleration of the crane trolley. Conclusions: a hybrid algorithm has been developed; the suggested algorithm implements a complex of procedures for assessment of changes occurring in frame structures under different loading scenarios, during the service life of an industrial building.
