Research on FEA and Optimizing for Structural Design of Pipelayer' Boom
Based on the tool of the ANSYS Workbench software, the modeling of three-dimensional Entity, meshing and dealing of loads and constraints has been done on the pipelayer’boom. According to the finite element analysis of pipelayer’boom in three basic conditions by the parameter of width, height and thickness, the material consumption of making boom is significantly reduced. All this is done in the premise of ensuring the safety of pipelayer’ boom with the objective of minimizing the quality by the finite element optimization. And the results will be the theoretical basis of the design and improvement of Pipelayer’ boom.
