Abstract:
The necessity of overcoming enbrmous ground vibrations due to forging operation; and a desired lowering of production costs through less maintenance led to an entirely new design of a foundation for an 8-ton forging hammer. This hammer is the first to be fully analyzed for shock, vibrations, movements and loads in all directions; the lirst to be built with prestressed concrete; the first to use high strength grouted concrete. The high strength and homogeneity requirements for the concrete and the extremely difficult placing conditions were met and overcome through the use of specially designed high strength grouted concrete.
