Description

Kohli & Kaliher has performed several structural analysis projects over the years including:

  • Structural inspection and analysis of the forge shop building structure to determine if the crane capacity could be increased from 60 tons to 90 tons. A second analysis was completed at a later date to determine if the crane capacity could be increased from 90 tons to 120 tons. Recommendations were given to modify the building structure to allow the building to carry the increased crane capacity.
  • Structural inspection and analysis of the foundry building structure to determine if the crane capacity could be increased from 200 tons to 250 tons.
  • Structural inspection and analysis of the induction heat treating towers to determine if the existing towers were capable of carrying an increased load from 50 to 70 tons. This structural analysis was performed using RISA-3D structural analysis software.
