Evaluation of Resistance of Corrugated Sheets under Bending by a Concentrated Loads from the Local Suspensions / Ocena Nosnosci Granicznej Blach Fałdowych Zginanych Siła Skupiona Od Lokalnych Podwieszen

Th This paper presents a simple method of evaluating the load resistance and stiffness of corrugated sheets locally loaded with suspended technical fixtures. As a part of this research, parametric numerical analyses of corrugated sheets of different span, and with differently located concentrated forces, were carried out. Stress distributions in the individual folds in the elastic range and in the ultimate limit state were identified. On their basis, equivalent concentrated load factors for the individual folds in the sheet were determined. The load factors enable analyses of the load resistance and stiffness of corrugated sheets loaded with concentrated forces, which can be helpful in design practice


Przedmiotem pracy jest analiza nosnosci i sztywnosci blach fałdowych wytezonych obciazeniem skupionym od lokalnych podwieszen np. „instalacji”. Wykonano parametryczne badania numeryczne MES blach fałdowych o zmiennych rozpietosciach i zmiennym usytuowaniu sił skupionych na długosci i szerokosci arkusza. Przeanalizowano 24 modele blach fałdowych. Zidentyfikowano rozkłady wytezen poszczególnych fałd w fazie sprezystej i w stanie granicznym nosnosci ustrojów. Na ich podstawie wyznaczono współczynniki zastepczych obciazen skupionych poszczególnych fałd ustroju. Umozliwiaja one analize nosnosci i sztywnosci blach fałdowych obciazonych siłami skupionymi, która jest przydatna w projektowaniu
