MEC626 (F11) Lab Project # 4: ANSYS for Real-World Rigid Frame Analysis and Re-Design Prepared by Dr. J. Cao 1 RYERSON UNIVERSITY Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering MEC626: Applied Finite Elements Lab Project #4: ANSYS for Real-World Rigid Frame Analysis and Re-Design Instructor: Dr. J. Cao Note: The lab report for this project should be submitted on time. Late report will receive no marks. This is a case study. The bridge shown in the right figure is under design for a case in which traffic appears with a total of 4 trucks equally spaced over the whole length of the bridge. A typical truck has a payload weight of 57500 lb and a cab weight of 8000 lb. The roadbed weighs 1500 lb/ft and is made of wide flange steel W12×305 I-beam. All other members used in the rigid frame must be made of steel with Young’s modulus 2 6 / 10 5 . 32 in lb E along with an allowable stress of 25 kpsi ; in the design shown, all members have a cross sectional area of 2 25 . 3 in . Neglect the weight of all frame elements and the deflection of
