Turret Design of 520t Supersized Ladle

The design was optimized for the connecting rods of the 520 t ladle turret so that the stress on five main structural members was uniformized. The fine finite element model of the ladle turret bulk structure was built,and stress and deformation of the structure was worked out. The computing results showed that the designed ladle turret could meet requirements on strength,rigidity and technology,and could ensure safe operation of the ladle turret.
