Abstract: Analysis of static and dynamic loads on equipment foundation in modular design of cold rolling mill has biggest challenges that any design engineer could face during rolling mill design. If not properly analysed, it could lead to a large amount of destruction in terms of performance of the cold rolling mill, property, loss of life and money. A prescriptive approach to mechanical design in the form of various codes and standards, has been utilised which helps to solve the problem to a greater extent by regulating strict norms for design, material and construction of the equipments. In this paper mechanical calculation is investigated by referring ASCE-7-98 Chapter 6.2, IS: 6533 (part II) and Design Data PSG Tech. for material properties, modelling by means of mechanical CAD software (Auto CAD and Solid works) and the analysis has been made by means of the FEM software of Solid works.

Keywords: static loads; dynamic loads; chimney foundation; modular design; cold rolling mills; FEA; finite element analysis; ASCE codes; standards; material properties; modelling; mechanical CAD; equipment design; design engineering.
