The steel crane beam design results and the failure conditions of the crane beams are displayed in the Crane Beams dialog. In the Crane Beams dialog, the material and section properties of the crane beams, biaxial bending interaction ratio, deflection control and body crease controls are displayed.
Location of Crane Beams Dialogue
After the analysis is done, you can access it by clicking the Crane Beam Design Results command under the Steel Design heading in the ribbon menu Analysis and Design tab .
