DIN 15018 is a crane code and has officially been replaced by the EN 13001. Some companies still use the DIN15018 for the structures. The code is based on the nominal stress concept. Different load spectra are included in order to adapt the permissible stress amplitudes to the service loading conditions.
LIMIT includes the fatigue assessment. Static strength assessment is not supported.
Typical fields of application: Fun rides, cranes and railway applications.
