FEM, Pressure Vessels, Support Frame


There are many types of structures all around us. Each structure has a specific purpose or function. Some structures are simple, while others are complex; however there are two basic principles of composing structures. They must be capable of carrying the loads that they are designed for without collapsing. They must support the various parts of the external load in the correct relative position. A structure refers to a system with connected parts used to support a load. Some examples related to civil engineering are buildings, bridges and towers. However, these structures are very complex for analyze and design. At first, we will consider simple examples of structures and parts of structures like beams, trusses, frames etc. The frame discussed in this paper is designed with conventional CAD design practices and then analyzed statically with FEA software. The analysis was carried out to determine the induced stresses and the deflections at various locations on proposed frame. The structure was optimized to reduce weight. In this project the Finite Element Analysis of skid Frame for Rigidity is been carried out. The base frame is analyzed using hyper mesh and ANSYS software. The static loads are applied on the frame and analysis is carried out. The test is carried out to check the conformance of the existing design. The skid base frame is modified for making a stiffer design within the allowable stress limits.
