Scaffold – FEA analysis and wind/snow loadings

Scaffold analysis

A scaffold company approached JC Design in order to provide structural analysis and a report for insurance purposes. A temporary roof structure was required along with scaffold board, tool allowance and dead/live loadings.

The weight of the temporary roof structure has been applied to the scaffold (visually it has not been added to the model). Wind action and snow loadings had many equations which accounted for location, altitude and surface area – the comprehensive report contained all problem solving and a final conclusion.
