Finite Element Analysis of a Carrier Frame 760640

In the past, the analysis of large, complicated steel frames has been extremely difficult, if not impossible. With the development of the computer and finite element analysis, the designer now has a tool to analyze the frame in detail and determine the potential areas of high stress before fabrication. This paper describes such a finite element model of the carrier frame of a rubber-tired mobile crane and how its analysis compares with actual test results.
