IVS Vibro Stands issues

Heavier than they need to be


o If the bottom I beams were replaced with square tubes in the same
configurations as the current design the square tubes would fail.
If the tubes were welded onto the side, and the weight is to
be supported by the vertical beams itself with the tubes
acting as antiroll members.
The welds would be under high stress if there is uneven
ground or when the antiroll members are loaded before the
vertical beams are loaded. The welds would most probably
fail under shear.
o

The bottom I beams can be replaced with 0.25in steel plates in


small sizes on each contacting foot.
This method results in a design 540lbs lighter than the
original
However in this design they would not be able to resist any
sideways forces that may occur during transportation or
storage (e.g. bumping into it)

Cornering issues
o From the FEA analysis, the structure is able to take sideways lateral
force of 0.15Gs. Anything beyond that would cause the structure to
start failing
This simulation does not take into account the body roll of
the transport vehicle, which may decrease the lateral load on
the structure. (it causes the mass to lean less towards the
side of the structure)
This 0.15G lateral force is sufficient, given if the vehicle
follow the speed limit strictly, but preferably, a slightly higher
lateral force would be ideal (e.g. around 0.5-0.6)
Outer Casing
o Each piece weighs in about 150lbs, creating an unnecessary
additional weight in excess of 500lbs
Suspension Via Chains
o Currently the design allows the entire structure and the vibro to be
winched up via the chains.
This creates instability when winched up, the vibro is not held
in place by anything, unless the chain is to have
pretensioning prior the lift.
If the virbo is winched up via the crane and the stands hang
off the vibros via chains, this produces a more stable
transport mode

Total work to be done:


-

Cutting the all the required materials to size


Welding all the pieces to form the skeletal structure
Drill holes on the thicker steel plates to allow the chains to fit through
Welding the steel plate inside the shorter I-beam
Paint the entire frame with a rust protection coat
Welding the outer covering steel plates onto the skeletal frame
Paint the outer casing to desired colour and logo painted/stickered on
