Analytical and experimental vibration analysis of telescopic platforms

Adil Yucel, Alaeddin Arpaci
In this study, vibration analysis of a telescopic platform is conducted, and the platform structure is reconstructed to satisfy vibrational standards. The analysis is realised using solid modelling, finite elements and an analytical method. The results are verified using experimental modal techniques. Through the finite element and experimental modal approach free vibration analysis is carried out and natural frequencies are determined. Additionally, vibration accelerations of the structure are obtained by forced vibration analysis of the model. All calculations one performed on the new reconstructed structure, and it is determined whether the reconstructed structure satisfies the vibrational standards.
