This project, completed in collaboration with Huazhong University of Science and Technology, was to design a shipping rack for large parts, push blocks, for Caterpillar Suzhou. This project was completed after gathering necessary background information from Caterpillar and outside sources. Using this information, the design process began with brainstorming numerous concepts which were narrowed down, modeled in Pro-E and FEA was performed using ANSYS. The final design was tested theoretically for safe operation then presented to Caterpillar.
