Padeye Design References

Padeye Design References

Hi all,
I am new on this forum.

I have to design a lifting padeyes to S-lay stinger structure and I am looking for reference documents describing requiremens for padeyes. I have DNV Standard Classification Note, but I saw PAD4- application calculating required dimension of padeyes with accordance with API.
And now my question, do you know which API code refers to padeye design. API RP 2A WSD do not include any design guidelines of that issue.

Thank you :)

DNV 2.7-1 and ISO TC 67/SC4 Part four. You can also contact DNV and request a copy of OFFCON.

hi TomekZeWschodu,

I am new to this too, in fact my first post.

I have come across design and testing of padeyes in API 17D. Go to section Annex K.

Hope that helps.
