This excel spreadsheet helps you design a pad-eye for Lifting or Transport Operations/Lashing design. It can also be used to verify an existing pad-eye for sling loads.
There are two versions:
- Pad-eye without bracket,
- Pad-eye with one or two brackets
Each type has one cheek plate.
It rigorously calculates all the stresses coming onto the pad-eye, viz.
1. Geometry check: Main plate radius, Shackle clearances
2. Stress Check for Pin Hole (Tensile, Bearing, Shear, Hertz stress)
3. Stress check for Base Plate (Tensile, Bending, Shear, Von Mises and Combined)
4. Stress Check for Base Weld (Tensile, Bending, Shear, Total Stress)
5. Shear Stress Check for Cheek Plate Weld
Immensely useful for Marine Operations. It is based on the standard references:

Indispensable program if you’re designing or evaluating lifting lugs. This is one of the best programs I’ve managed to find on the topic. Our Clients appreciate the detail provided in the calculations and related documentation. This program adds significant value to any design organization.

Should be useful to have a spreadsheet of an overlapped pad eye that is used in structural design of blocks for ship constructions

It was highly helpful to understand approach for padeye design

Thorough checks on typical padeye.

I was in a position where I needed an analysis done in a very short period of time. Normally, I would do it myself but the tight schedule (minutes) meant that I had to find a canned solution. PadEyePro worked very well for this application.

For check/review analysis quick and efficient.

Easy setup for basic padeye design or verification, but due to programmer built-in Excel output limitations not suitable for reports customization. Additional Excel sheet with input & output summary would also have been a valuable addition for more practical use.

Pad-Eye Design tool helps to check lifting pad-eys in the earlier beginning stage of the project.
