FEA Case Study

Seismic Qualification of Industrial Rack for Storing Computer Peripherals

The Client
Industrial Storage Rack Manufacturer, Canada

The Objective

To determine the structural integrity and performance characteristics of the industrial rack system under different seismic loading conditions.

The Solution

A 3D model of the Industrial PC Rack was constructed to perform finite element analysis. The analysis helped in determining the structural integrity and performance characteristics of the Industrial Rack System under different seismic loading conditions.

Technology/Software

Challenges

Engineering Solution

A detailed three-dimensional (3-D) finite element (FE) computer model was constructed for seismic qualification analysis of the Industrial Rack. This seismic qualification was done for Bellcore zone 4 requirements.

The analysis was performed to determine structural integrity and performance characteristics of the Industrial Rack System under different seismic loading conditions. The objective of the work performed was to quantify the system performance characteristics under the influence of seismic inertia loads, based on the specification and applicable regulatory documents and industry standards.

Modal analysis was also performed to determine the lowest natural frequencies and associated mode shapes of the assembly. The seismic analysis was executed using the spectrum available using response spectrum method (SPRS: Single Point Response System).

Results indicated that all investigated components of the Industrial Rack Assembly will maintain their structural integrity during and after the specified seismic events for Bellcore zone 4.
