Keywords:Security, Automatic Access Pedestrian Gate Turnstile, SolidWorks Simulation Model, Failure Analysis
This research work is focused on the failure analysis of Automatic Access Pedestrian Gate Turnstile using SolidWorks Simulation Model. Failure analysis was carried out on both static and dynamic failure of the system putting into consideration the yield stress, resultant displacement, failure cycle, percentage damage, maximum strain and most importantly factor of safety. The results of Von Mises stress analysis showed that a maximum value of 5.77Mpa yield strength was obtained. A displacement of 0.257737m and a strain value of 2.03989×10-5 were obtained respectively. The fatigue simulation damage factor was not up to 100% though is up to 50%. At the endurance limit or fatigue limit, the SN curve flattens at 106 cycle. A safety of 61 was recorded with the system which is above 1, thus the system is safe and efficient and can be used for security check.
