ANALYSIS AND FATIGUE: SHOCK ISOLATION

When hydraulic material moving equipment was employed to rapidly unload rail cars in an industrial process, substantial dynamic loads were introduced into the support system. This led to rapid failure of rubber vibration and shock isolation components. Using Finite Element techniques, HGC Engineering was able to design improved isolators to withstand the applied forces.

The colour coded cross section illustrates the stress distribution in one revision of the improved isolator design.
