WeirSPM Pump of the Future PowerFrame
Gorash, Yevgen (Researcher) MacKenzie, Donald (Academic)
The design for the POTF is currently being completed by Weir SPM and based on the discussions on the new design, a set of numerical analysis studies are now proposed for the powerframe of the POTF: • Kinematic analysis, • Structural analysis, • Fatigue analysis, • Design variations and optimisation analysis.
Period 01-Apr-2014 - 31-Aug-2014
