13 Oct 638: Gamma Detector Assembly
Modal and Response Spectrum Analysis of a gamma detector assembly. The modal analysis was used to determine the natural frequencies of the structure and to calculate the input for the response spectrum analysis. The response spectrum analysis gave the stresses and strains as its outputs. These stresses were used to validate the design of the assembly, with recommendations given to compare bolt forces against their allowables, and conduct further analyses on the devices placed on the assembly in practice.
