When laying down a long slender beam from a near-vertical orientation, to a horizontal position on a flat surface, the payload may slip and move suddenly in unintended and unpredictable ways. This occurs during crane operations when the movements of the overhead trolley and lowering of the hoist cable are not properly coordinated. The payload's unintended sliding can potentially cause damage and injure people. This paper presents static and dynamic analyses of slender-beam payload lay-down operations that establish a structured method to predict the safe conditions for lay-down operations. Also, a new method to measure the friction coefficient of surface-to-line contact is proposed. Lay-down experiments are carried out to verify the theoretical predictions.
