This paper deals with questions concerning technical diagnostics and optimisation of fatigue durability for the crane track beams installed in a metallurgical plant. The fatigue durability is determined using a strain gauge measurement in order to calculate the relevant residual durability of the crane track beams. Consequently, there are proposed suitable measures that are necessary with regard to the next operation of the given crane track, which is supporting a bridge crane.
