Download the DaRa structural analysis of fasteners used for an outdoor switchboard at Port of Gladstone

This document provides a structural analysis of fasteners used for an outdoor switchboard at the Port of Gladstone, and how the wind affects the fasteners.

The structural analysis aimed to investigate the factor of safety bolts that are used to fix the switchboard to the plinth when exposed to maximum wind loads. The conclusion of the survey showed that the switchboard and its bolts could withstand the maximum potential wind load generating in Port of Gladstone with minimum safety factor of 1.85 and bolts with a minimum safety factor of 2.29.
