Certain heavy-lifting applications require the coordinated movement of multiple cranes. Such tasks dramatically increase the complexity of crane operation, especially when the payload has a non-uniform shape. This paper studies the dynamic behavior of a dual-hoist bridge crane moving triangular payloads. 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.
