  • Stabilized Columns Essay

    This beam, through lateral constraints, would be able to maintain its flexibility and carry large loads. This solution serves as the guide for the initial concept with some practical changes. Euler Buckling of Columns The constrained buckling column induces higher modes to carry larger loads. Based on the Euler buckling equation (Figure 2.1), mode has a n2 effect on the buckling load, so inducing higher modes increases load capacity exponentially. This could be useful in this design because the weight bearing member can remain flexible and still potentially meet target…

  • Nt1310 Unit 6 Lab Report

    The shape of the system at point 1 and 2 are labeled and shown below (Figure 5.12). The moment of the system was solved for in ABAQUS and superimposed in red over the shape of the column. It can be seen that the system moment is zero in a variety of places over the course of the loading. One place the moment it zero here is at L/2. The moment at L/2 is only zero during line-contact. Due to the symmetric nature of the buckling sequence, line-contact repeats here throughout the course of…

  • Continuous Varying Constraint And Buckling Column Concept

    The past chapter proposed the continuous floating constraint and buckling column concept. In this chapter, a test setup is proposed to investigate its loading nature and validate the concept. A series of tests are performed, and the results are presented and discussed. The results of the tests conducted in this chapter will serve as measures in assessing the strengths and flaws of the initial concept, and point towards potential solutions. This group of tests varied two geometric parameters:…

  • Forged Rib Essay

    of this box structure is largely controlled by the buckling of the compression cover plate. In order to get a minimum weight design of such a box the compression cover skin and its support arrangements are to be selected so as to give highest buckling stress. In this project an ideal box beam representative of a wing torsion box will be considered for a detailed analysis. The box beam subjected to a bending moment, various structural arrangements will be considering in order maximising the…

  • Why Seat Belts Should Be Worn

    down the highway. CRASH, a body flies across the center line. A scene that happens more than people may think. The first automobile was made in 1886, many say that Karl Benz was the first person to produce the first car. In the United States, the Ford motor company first started mass production of cars for the people in 1908. The first law about seatbelts was signed in 1958 by Congress that every car had to have a seat belt manufactured in them. Seat belts should be worn while in a vehicle,…

  • Crash Box Research Paper

    The crash box is the car component that is attached at each end of a car’s bumper and its function is to absorb the energy produced during collision or impact. Chapter 1 describes briefly on crash boxes and their characteristics. As mentioned earlier in Chapter 1, crash boxes are designed with or without patterns. Each one of the designs have different energy absorbing characteristic depending on the design and its patterns, shape, size, etc. Most crash boxes are designed with several grooves…

  • Jumbo Hopper Case Study

    In this study, the Jumbo hopper (JH) barge is selected as a striking vessel. Also, the finite element models of impacted piers in isolated and multiple-pier cases including three piers and two spans are developed in LS-DYNA25 according to available characteristics in Consolazio et al.3 Fig. 1 shows the bow and non-bow (stern) portions of JH barge developed in LS-DYNA according to properties as given in AASHTO provisions.2 The bow portion of the barge contains the impact zone with outer plates…

    not have bending moment. Stress - Strain Graph Tensile Strength The tensile strength of a material is the maximum amount of tensile force that it can be resist to before breaking. From the Stress- Strain graph, the tensile strength is approximately 147 MPa. Compressive Strength Compressive Strength is the maximum stress a material can withstand under applied load. Assumption Since there was no testing machine to test compressive strength of the straw, the straw was compressed on an…

  • Analysis Of Napoleon Crossing The Alps By Jacques-Louis David

    "Napoleon Crossing the Alps" by Jacques-Louis David in the year 1801, is perhaps one of the greatest surging examples of Neoclassical art we have today. It is an oil painting on canvas whose saturated color shows an unusual amount of reverence to a mere man in charge of an army. Such exquisite detail and illumination in classical art was reserved for deities and heroes-- through this work it can only be assumed artist David equates Napoleon's strength with that of an epic figure or at the very…
