Anchor loads analysis, concrete sub-floor analysis

Performed to specify motion system lower knuckle (pillow-block) mounting requirements. Proper sizing of anchors ensures
the motion system loads can be safety transferred into the facility's concrete floor. Loads based on FE model predictions of
shear and uplift loads on the actuator knuckles.

 

EXAMPLE PROJECT:
B-52 Aircrew Trainer Upgrade

CUSTOMER:
Rockwell-Collins STS

ANALYSIS SERVICES PERFORMED:
• Created FE models of 6-DOF motion system in critical failure configurations
• Predicted actuator and base knuckle loads, and individual anchor loads
• Validated specified anchors can transfer loads to required safety factors
