Street Grate Finite Element Analysis

Within 3 days we were able to perform realistic stress analysis on a street grate to determine if it was strong enough to support the expected loads. We made a few recommended changes to beef up the grate in a couple places which was able to cut out weeks from an already tight schedule and eliminate the need to build expensive prototype units.

After doing the stress analysis, we put together a complete set of manufacturing drawings including piece parts with dimensions and a weldment assembly drawing.
