Static Load Capacity Analysis nn Double Ladder With Reinforced Treads


  • Bogdan Šimun Full professor at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computing in Mostar


The paper performs a static check of the load-bearing capacity of double ladders used in construction for painting and electrical works at a height of 2 to 3 meters. The aim was to determine the maximum load-bearing capacity of the ladder in the most unsuitable position as well as ladder crossbars, allowed stressing of the material from which the structure is made, which is fir and spruce, and at the same time checking the stability of the vertical beams to bending. The paper was done as part of the forensic expertise.
