China is a big trading country with a large number of ports, so a large number of loading and unloading vehicles are needed to carry out cargo transportation. As a traditional lifting model, the front loading and unloading vehicle plays a vital role in the port cargo lifting. The traditional front crane boom has many problems, such as unreasonable stress structure, low service life, easy fatigue and wear. CATIA and ABAQUS are used to model and simulate the boom, and realize the lightweight, stabilization and firm arm by adding triangular ribs, structural ribs and reasonable hollow out of the axial section.
