ABSTRACT
ABSTRACT: Skid Base Frame is a structural assembly consisting of beams of various cross sections and dimensions. The base frame is subjected to gravitational loading of all the components mounted viz. Compressor, Air Receiver vessel etc. The frame discussed in this report was designed with conventional CAD design practices and then analyzed statically with FEA software. The acceleration loads considered during analysis phase resembled the actual loading cases. The analysis was carried out to determine the induced stresses and the deflections at various locations on proposed frame. The structure was optimized to reduce weight.
