Abstract—This paper gives the introduction about the construction of telescopic boom and different forces and moment acts on the different parts and area while picking up the load. The telescopic boom is fitted on front end of the crane for lifting of load from different radius. More the distance of the load from the front axle of crane, less would be the load taking capacity. Accordingly boom of crane is designed. Here in this paper we shall consider one load case, i.e., when load lifted will be taken on the Jib Head.

Index Terms—Telescopic boom, Load, Radius, Capacity, Front axle, Jib head
