Vacuum Chamber Design
as the welding load is about 434 lb-inch length , it is distributed on the longitunal welding at 434 lb/inch lenght by 20,5 inch span between beams.
load on each beam as column 434 x 20.5 = 8897 lbs
As it is a column, it is loaded as a column .colinear with it's longitudinal axis. 7'4" heigth
The problem here is SAG or BULGE as it is long column so more than compression you have other efect , i Call it PANDEO in Spanish.
It is what hapen if you want to PUSH a rope .or a wire :) ;)
