Hi, For my engineering project for college I am designing a rotating table/steel frame structure for supporting a mild steel panel which weighs 180kg. My previous experience with UDL's has only been in using a 2D beam like situation to calculate how the load is spread, bending of the beam and reaction forces etc. For this project I need to figure out how the load will affect the frame and how many supporting braces I will require in the frame to comfortably deal with a 180-200kg mass. As the table/frame will rotate through 180deg, the structure will be connected to a support at each end via a 2+1/4" shaft so it is free to rotate. I am clearly a beginner at this! Can anyone please give me some advice on how I should go about making calculations to decide on my framework and support requirements. I can attach a sketch if it would help? Thanks!
