A compound oscillator, comprising two masses and two springs, is used to model the response of a big hammerhead crane and its load if one of its two reeves of steel wire ropes were to fail. The response is used to obtain a "back of the envelope" estimate of how far the load would fall, and check that the crane would not be overstressed.
