Structural Analysis of the Mainframe of the Hydraulic Side Arm Charger for Heavy Load
Aniket A Nale, Dr. Kishor K Dhande
Bulk handling represents a key advantage for rail transport. Bulk is transported in open topped Wagons, hopper Wagons and tank Wagons.The trend is to go for large capacity units, located close to the coal deposit and construct split located Power plant units nearer to the source of mines (Coal mines). As most of these Power plant units are receiving coal through railway rakes they need to install wagon tipplers.In thermal Power Plants, Wagon tippler, Side arm charger and Track hopper system is receiving facility of the material.Low costs combined with energy efficiency and low inventory costs allow trains to handle bulk much cheaper than by road. A side arm charger can handle 25-30wagons for pulling and pushing of Weighing 140 T on straight and leveled track efficiently and in least amount of time. The present work will an effort to design and analyze side arm charger mainframe. Design & 3D modeling of mainframe will be conducting static structural analysis by Finite Element Analysis (FEA).
