Static Finite Element Analysis of Container Flooring and Chassis Combinations
We analyzed static finite element of the container flooring and chassis combination structure rolling by a car; then, we analyzed the maximum deformation and corresponding maximum stress of the flooring and chassis combination when chassis crossbeam cross-sectional shape from the U-shaped to the I-shaped and compared with the original structure with the same force, as well as the space between the central crossbeam decreased, we can see that, the appropriate crossbeam space can obviously increase the stiffness of the container and reduce the stress of the structure; at the same time, we analyzed the combinations which with different flooring structures, we can see that the difference deformation between the new combination and the original was small, so we know that the mechanical properties of flooring had little effect to the mechanical properties of the entire combination.
