Shijiazhuang Tiedao University has made great achievements in the fields of engineering construction. The knock-down 1000t-heavy gantry crane designed by us is widely used to reload the heaviest machine in Asia. We have completely the timely long term security protection of the Wuhu Grand Bridge, Liaohe River Grand Bridge, and the Yellow Railway Bridge. We have successfully completely the design of 900t/24m bridge girder erection machine used in the Beijing- Shanghai high speed railway construction, one of the heaviest bridge girder erections in the world. We have developed the first domestic 450t/24m assembled bridging machine for high-speed railway and succeed in hoisting the first domestic 400t-heavy railway box girder. It succeeds in solving the problem controlling the speed raising locomotive and bridge vibration, which ensured safety in railway speed-up.
