Abstract:The TPC Support Arm Installation Fixture is used to facilitate mounting of the TPC Support Arms. The following note contains calculations of the stresses in the most highly loaded parts. Elastic stability of the struts is also considered. An overall capacity is calculated from the allowable stresses for the materials used and applying generous safety factors.
