Unformatted text preview: Design for a Telescopic Boom Aerial Lift ABSTRACT: Design specifications for a telescopic boom aerial lift are given. The lift is designed to support a work platform whose floor is always horizontal and able to hold one worker, plus miscellaneous tools and supplies. The boom is retractable and the turret can rotate 360 degrees. Assuming the weight of the worker and his/her supplies, m C , are equal to 200 kg, the mass of the counterweight, m F , should be __kg and the force capacity on the hydraulic cylinder, F GH, is __N for this static analysis. The factor of safety of __ was chosen to account for extreme circumstances, such as, extra weight on the platform or some severe weather circumstances. INTRODUCTION: A boom lift is a specific type of aerial lift that has a bucket attached to it. Telescoping boom lifts, which work well in the construction industry, have extendable arms to reach objects outside the normal range of the lift . Aerial lifts hold workers at a usually unattainable height, a height at which they might get seriously injured if the lift cannot support...
