In this study, the effects of oblique running and ideal motion on the stresses of bridge crane wheels were examined. The stresses on the crane wheels were calculated using the rotation angles and the forces. The commercial finite element package I-DEAS was used for the solution of the problem. The technical values of two double girder bridge cranes with 32 and carrying capacities and crane span were used. Finally, the stresses caused by the oblique running were compared with the ideal motion. The numerical results show that the stress values increase by the oblique running.
