Abstract

This study case presents a comprehensive static finite element analysis (FEA) of an equipment foundation aboard a marine vessel, conducted in three distinctive scenarios. The initial analysis adheres to a generalized standard, providing a baseline for structural performance. Subsequently, the same foundation is re-evaluated with the addition of stiffening brackets, aimed at enhancing rigidity and load distribution capabilities. The final
analysis transitions from the theoretical models to practical application, examining the foundation as it is truly mounted and integrated within the ship's structure. Each scenario is meticulously compared to assess the impact of design modifications and integration on the foundation's performance.
