Plummer Block, Structural Analysis, Composite Material, Ansys Structural


In this article we have done static structural analysis of a Plummer block or pedestal bearing with the help of Ansys static structural tool. The material used for a Plummer block are generally cast iron for cap and block & structural steel or stainless steel for other parts such as upper and lower braces, nut and bolts. In this structural analysis we have made a 3d model of Plummer block with the help of Catia V5 and then analysed in Ansys structural tool for strength analysis, firstly we done analysis with original material of Plummer block (grey cast iron for cap and block & structural steel for other parts such as nut, bolts and braces) and then replaced the material of cap and block by a composite material which is namely as alumina saffil. The results concluded the optimum values of total deformation, equivalent stress and elastic strain. These results showed greater strength of the Plummer block with composite material alumina saffil compared to original material grey cast iron.
