Transport and Support Frame Design

Dynamic Engineering Consultants design transport and support frames. We make use of the applicable Australian Standards as well as the National Transport Commission’s load restraint guide. In summary the design has to be sufficient to withstand imposed longitudinal and lateral loads associated with transport applications.
In some cases the frames are only used to transport the equipment around site. In these cases we also perform forklift stability calculations in addition to the structural design. We also adhere to the Australian Standard’s requirements in terms of nameplate requirements.
Below are some examples of transportation and other frames.
