Finite element stress analysis of D0 test beam transporter mainframe assembly

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The D0 test beam transporter mainframe assembly is a structural frame lying in a horizontal plane and designed to support and orient the D0 test liquid argon calorimeter properly in the test beam. Azimuthal adjustment is provided by a turntable with a mean radius of 64 inches, supported on a pressurized oil bearing. Angular positioning is achieved by an hydraulic actuator attached to the turntable which places force against an arm on the calorimeter vessel, causing it to rotate. Vertical positioning is adjusted by jacks at four corners of the platform. Preliminary design calculations were based on simplifying and conservative ... continued below

Description

The D0 test beam transporter mainframe assembly is a structural frame lying in a horizontal plane and designed to support and orient the D0 test liquid argon calorimeter properly in the test beam. Azimuthal adjustment is provided by a turntable with a mean radius of 64 inches, supported on a pressurized oil bearing. Angular positioning is achieved by an hydraulic actuator attached to the turntable which places force against an arm on the calorimeter vessel, causing it to rotate. Vertical positioning is adjusted by jacks at four corners of the platform. Preliminary design calculations were based on simplifying and conservative assumptions which rendered the problem statically determinate. The purpose of this analysis is to provide more precise information on stress and deflection by including redundancies and structural detail. 2 figs., 1 tab.
