The article considers the actual problem of national economic importance — it is an
effective use of a standard rolling profile, namely, T-shaped and I-beam sections, as monorail tracks
of overhead cranes and conveyors. An assessment of the stress state of monorail with vertical and
transverse loads is given.
Performed analysis of the work of the monorail in the stressed state, reinforced by the
welding strip.The ways of welding of transverse or longitudinal edge strips of I-beam by welding
are considered and the expediency of such solutions is shown.
The analysis is given and the calculated dependencies are obtained on riding shelf with
welded strip of rational thickness. The results of theoretical studies are confirmed experimentally.
