Abstract:

This report describes the computer-based, dynamic and finite element analysis of the Joint Services Imagery Processing System JSIPS Trailer. The JSIPS trailer is a modified M87lAl, 22-12-ton, flatbed, semi-trailer. The M87lAl deck and frame were converted from a flatbed configuration into a gooseneck configuration. The computer-based dynamic and finite element analysis was performed in order to determine what effects the modification would have on the structural integrity andor operational performance of the trailer.
