In order to realize mechanical properties test of the emergency towing arrangements, anchor chain and other large marine components, a large-tonnage and multi-function horizontal tension test platform is put forward in this paper. The paper analyzes the disadvantages of the frame structure of the existing experimental platform and designs the composite structure of the concrete and steel. The steel has good elasticity and toughness, the concrete has good performance of high rigidity and compression resistance, so the composite structure takes the advantages of both. The sharp of the frame is like “L”, which can be used to testing different projects. The paper gives the detailed size and analysis procedure of the frame. And it finds a more reasonable structure by means of finite element to analyze and optimize. The frame structure has the advantages of low weight and cost. The platform has been installed in Zhoushan, China successfully.
Key words: mechanical property test platform / frame design / analyze and optimize
