Finite Element Analysis

The Task and Our Role
Extensive Finite Element Analysis was used throughout the structural design of the Mt Arthur surface works upgrades.  Several platework models were constructed to assess heavily loaded items of structure using non-linear techniques, as well as assessing stress and deflection magnitudes of chutework and underpans.  To ensure satisfactory vibration performance for structures housing vibrating and reciprocating machinery, both natural frequency and harmonic response analyses were developed.
