Optimal design of power frames for special purpose vehicles' cockpits with regard to their eigenfrequencies and shock resistance
ST Petersburg State Polytechnical University, 195220 St.-Petersburg Gzhatskaya str. 21/ 2, Russia
The paper is focused on development of a methodology for designing special purpose vehicles' cockpits minimizing vibration and impacts in the workspace. Finite elements method is utilized as the main tool in assessment of the structural design. The method also forms a foundation for further topology optimization, which allows for obtaining lightweight adaptable to production design fulfilling both vibration and impact requests, standards and regulations. The method has been used in designing experimental cockpit for a prospective tractor. Thus it is shown that the methodology being presented in the article can be successfully implemented in design of special purpose vehicles.
