PURPOSE AND SCOPE. This UFC provides comprehensive descriptions of the predominant crane types in service at Navy shore facilities. It also outlines the general design requirements for new weight handling equipment and the pertinent engineering methodology for design evaluation of older and contemporary cranes.

It should be understood that numerous exceptions to the crane configurations, design features, and design criteria can be found in the Navy crane inventory – all with a record of successful performance – but they are beyond the scope of this UFC. Unless their safety or performance becomes questionable, they should be left intact.

Note that this UFC does not constitute a detailed technical design, maintenance or operations manual, and is issued as a general guide to the considerations associated with the design of weight handling equipment.
