The telescope has a 4m aperture primary mirror, however due to the off axis nature of the optical layout, the telescope mount has proportions similar to an 8 meter class telescope. The technology normally used in this class of telescope is well understood in the telescope community and has been successfully implemented in numerous projects.
The world of large machine tools has developed in a separate realm with similar levels of performance requirement but different boundary conditions. In addition the competitive nature of private industry has encouraged development and usage of more cost effective solutions both in initial capital cost and thru-life operating cost.
Telescope mounts move relatively slowly with requirements for high stability under external environmental influences such as wind buffeting. Large machine tools operate under high speed requirements coupled with high application of force through the machine but with little or no external environmental influences.
The process of balancing the system requirements with new technologies is based on the experience of the ATST project team, Ingersoll Machine Tools who are the main contractor for the TMA and MT Mechatronics who are their design subcontractors.
This paper highlights a perdre du poids avec osim ushape of these proven technologies from the commercially driven machine tool world that are being introduced to the TMA design.
Also the challenges of integrating and ensuring that the differences in application requirements are accounted for in the design are discussed. Ces deux modeles sont composes d'une couche peripherique d'os cortical et remplis soit d'os trabeculaire soit de moelle osseuse. Ces deux modeles permettent d'obtenir deux geometries, chacune propice a la propagation circonferentielle ou longitudinale des ondes guidees.
Les resultats, ou trois differents modes ont pu etre identifies, sont compares avec des donnees experimentales obtenues avec des fantomes osseux et theoriques. La sensibilite de chaque mode pour les differents parametres des proprietes mecaniques est alors etudiee ce qui permet de conclure sur le potentiel de chaque mode quant a la prediction de risque de fracture ou de presence de microfractures.
