Stress/Deflection Analysis

During a fire, fire departments have a crew standing by in the event a firefighter goes down. If this happens, the standby crew’s job is to go into the burning structure and pull the downed firefighter out with any means necessary. DT Engineering designed a polypropylene rescue board that allows the rescue team to drag, carry, or lower an incapacitated firefighter out of a structure. Using COSMOSWorks, we analyzed the structure of the rescue board and optimized it for fabrication and end use.
