Finite Element Structural Analysis of a Pit Viper 235 Main Frame

Abstract : The Pit Viper series 235 (PV-235) blast hole drill offers new technological innovations for many applications including hard rock mining for metals and overburden coal mining. This paper is centered on an ongoing structural analysis of PV-235 Mainframe. Systematic approach has been followed in this project using ANSYS FEA software. The methodology of this project is to carry out structural analysis of the PV-235 mainframe which is subjected to two different types of loading corresponding to the respective boundary condition. From the structural analysis for the given loading and boundary condition it is evident that the maximum stress on the PV-235 Mainframe is below the Yield stress of the material, so the design is safe under the given loading. Reaction Forces applied in the ANSYS tool also matches well with the given input which is done as a sanity check for this analysis.
