Abstract

Shear pin load cells are installed as replacement for standard parts of machines and structures such as axle, swivel pin, link or shackle pin. In particular these cells are installed in cranes, winches, lifts and hoists to measure the loads in cables passing over wheels, sheafs or rotary fairleads, and in the anchorage of guys supporting masts and towers. This study presents the results of an investigation of a real world problem where the Boundary Element solution highlights the shortcomings of simplified solutions. Moreover, a new approach is developed using the BEM solution.
