Abstract

"This dissertation presents a simplified mathematical model and computer simulation of the vertical motion of a press. The model is verified by comparing simulation results with actual field measurements.

Using this model, the computer simulation is then extended to study the dynamic response of a bolted press, one with loosened anchor bolts, and one which is isolated. Press performance, in terms of acceleration of the press, velocity of its foundation, and forces transmitted to the foundation, is analyzed in relation to the foundation mass and the stiffness of the isolators, where applicable. Comparative performances of the presses secured by the various methods are discussed"--Abstract, page ii.
