Research at Va. Tech in the area of dynamic behavior modeling and crane damping have been undertaken. The dynamic behavior modeling capability has been designed to us 3-D CAD models and to realistically model multiple cranes or other material handling tools. The crane damping work has been conceived to provide for a novel approach to the issue of crane payload motion control. The dynamic behavior modeler will also be used to model control theory behavior as the research progresses to replicate experimental results.
