The stress and fatigue analysis of the transportation line

The stress and fatigue analysis of the transportation line

Leaders:  Peter Wriggers
Team:  Meisam Soleimani
Year:  2018
Remarks:  In collaboration with Salzgitter GmbH

The conveyor of the production line in Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH which carries the steel coils is going to be subjected to an extra load due to the bigger coil size. The objective is to do a structural analysis of the conveyor to see if the safety factor of structure is still in the allowable region. Since, the loading condition is naturally variable due to continuously feeding the moving conveyor with steel coils, a fatigue analysis is required in addition to an ordinary static analysis.
