Optimization of Crane Telescopic Boom Structure Based on Finite Element Software 05-16-02-0015

This also appears in SAE International Journal of Materials and Manufacturing-V132-5EJ

In this article, a 300-ton truck crane was used as the research object, and the data and experience of telescopic boom design were integrated to optimize the design research under three dangerous working conditions of the telescopic boom. Three-dimensional (3D) modeling software and finite element software were used to model and statistically analyze the truck crane telescopic boom. Then the correctness of the finite element model was verified by static experiments, and the design was optimized. Under the condition of satisfying the strength and stiffness, the telescopic crane boom was optimized by using the response surface optimization module in Ansys workbench software to be lightweight, and more satisfactory results were obtained. Finally, through the modal and flexural analysis of the optimized model, ideas and suggestions were provided for the further optimization of the telescopic boom.
