Preliminary and Computer Plastic Analyses of Rollover Protective Structures 740704

Two plastic analyses are presented for rollover protective structures: a preliminary two-dimensional analysis enabling the designer to meet recommended practice SAE J396, and a refined analysis adapting the problem-oriented language IBM-STRESS to treat the problem as a three-dimensional one.
Full-scale experiments with six rollover protective structures for earthmoving machines confirm these analyses for prediction of load-deflection behavior and energy absorption.
