Case Study Of An Evaluation Of A Stacker Boom Luffing Pulley By Irwin's Model And Under Bs 7910 Guidance

By Martins J.A., KoZvesdy I., Romao E.C. and Ferreira I.


A case study on evaluation of a heavy-duty Stacker Boom Luffing Pulley was presented. Irwin's fracture toughness method and the British Standard were used to help in the decision-making process. Using inspection, discontinuities were found at the first look in the cylinder cross-section at the region of welding of the cylinder ends. A more detailed analysis was conducted by ultrasonic mapping, crossing the cylinder transverse thickness and longitudinal to its length. The final decision took into account accurate analysis of the stress o 1 (Principal Stress) from Finite Element Method (FEM) and o ref based on British Standard, and comparing the defect real size and the critical crack size calculated by Irwin equation.
