SAMMS-t710: Structural strength analysis

Customer: L&S Luddeneit und Scherf GmbH, Germany

Project tasks

  • Structural strength analysis of SAMMS-t710 freight vehicle.
  • Creation of mid-surface Finite Element Model (FEM)
  • Definition of load case and boundaries conditions
  • Interpretation of simulation result according to EN12663-2010
  • Creation of structural strength report

Our Approach

L&S contracted PROSE to demonstrate the strength of the SAMMS-t710 modification they designed as per EN 12663-1 by means of a finite element analysis (FEA). PROSE did assess the design modification in light of EN 15085-3:2010, then create a 3D model for calculation, define the loads cases together with L&S, perform the simulation, assess the results with presentation in a report. We also did support with design adaptation where required to reach EN 12663 fulfilment.

Customer benefit

By contracting PROSE, L&S did benefit from our wide experience in structural strength analysis. This led to faster and efficient design integrity calculation and adaptation of design when required to ensure structural integrity of the rail grinding vehicle car body main structure.
