A Computer Program for the Structural Analysis of Space Frame Type Protective Canopies.
NTIS: PB 210 166 :53 pages
This report presents a Fortran IV computer program for the structural analysis of space-frame protective canopies used in underground mines to protect equipment operators from falls of roof, face, or rib. This program entitled canopy permits rapid calculation of the elastic strength of a canopy for a variety of static loading conditions. Stresses in, and displacements of, each structural member are computed and printed out. Additionally, identification of all members that have commenced yielding, weight of the canopy, total loads on the canopy, and maximum loads that the canopy can sustain elastically are output. Program description, input instructions, program listing, and two example problems are included.
