Nuclear Lifting Design

02/02/2017

Eadon have just completed the design and validation of six ultra-high-integrity hoist support structures, for use in the Nuclear Industry.

A particular challenge of this project was the need to protect vulnerable ceiling anchor bolts against overload. The mounting system was therefore specifically developed to redistribute moments and provide a plastic yield mechanism, below the yield strength of the bolts. By clearly defining the requirements and boundary conditions we were able to produce an innovative but elegantly simple design, flexible enough to reduce impact forces but still capable of providing a safe rigid response during 1 in 10,000 year earthquake.
