I've been working on a large frame sructure for some time and I'd like to be fairly confident that my results are good. I've tested the structure every way I know how (Linear) many times over in the design process in both Inventor FEA and Algor Simulation, but I lack the experience to know if the design will work in the real world like it does in the digital world. As well, the stucture we're building is expensive so building and testing prototypes really isn't an option. I could use an expert opinion from anyone out there who has real world experience with something like this. I've attached the file.
Thanks in Advanced!
i doubt that anyone here will be able to help you by just taking a look at the picture you have posted. The only chance to get someones opinion will be to post the files that show loads and constraints. Even then it will be hard to predict if your calculations are right because one of the most common mistakes is the use of wrong loads.
i would suggest to upload the file to a free file hosting service and post the download link here. This way it is available to other experienced users also without posting there email-adress within this forum.
