Rack and Pinion Lifting Device Structural Design of Large-Scale Dynamic Sculpture
The design of lifting device for a large-scale dynamic sculpture at tourist district was introduced. According to its own characteristics of lift device, the "back-to-back" style of rack and pinion for the lift system was designed. It was used the finite element analysis software to analyze the strength of the rack and pinion which is a key part of the lift device. According to the stress of dedendum for the pinion is too bad, it was proposed that increased the radius of the fillet for dedendum.
