Barge main deck FEA

barge deck finite element resultsThe left displayed picture presents the von Mises stress in a barge main deck. To obtain the results a static analysis was performed using FEMAP software. The loads are induced by a truck crane seafastened onto the ship. Dynamic amplification factors are not considered.

Truck crane 3dThe crane used in this study has 24 metric tons weight. To the left there is a 3D render done with Google Sketchup. The tire footprint is considered 400*200 mm and the weight is distributed even.

For more details on this study please leave a comment bellow and I will answer asap.
