Abstract
A boom truck is a type of mobile crane that has a boom to lift heavy items, sometimes onto the truck bed. When a boom truck lifts a load, the boom angle changes, the boom is extended, and the crane's upper deck rotates to swing the load. As these movements occur, the distance from the load's center of gravity to the crane's tipping axis changes, which can lead to instability if the crane's lift capacity is exceeded. The crane can collapse.
