Static and Dynamic Analysis of Stiffened Plate Used in Machine Tool Column


Static behavior (under torsion and bending loading) of machine tool column was studied in this paper. The effects of changing the cross sectional area of the column itself on the deformations (design parameters) was investigated. The adding of stiffeners and changing the stiffeners cross sectional area are also verified. The results show that using of stiffeners can produse a great reduction in deformation of the column structure under the stastic loading mentioned above. Also using stiffeners with different cross-sectional areas suggest the best stiffener cross-sectional shape can be used to give the minimum deformations of column structure. Dynamic analysis of column involves calculating natural frequencies and mode of different column structure mentioned above, these frequencies are fairly insensitive of adding stiffeners to colmn structures.
