Don Bosco Casket: calculation of the theoretical mass (it)




The dimensions envisaged by the project are the following:

  • LENGTH = 2.50 ml
  • HEIGHT = 1.25 ml
  • DEPTH '= 0.97 ml
  1. Float tempered glass cover 8 mm thick the dimensions of the material are as follows:
    • 0.47 x 1.83 x 0.008 for two sides
    • 0.15 x 1.83 x 0.008 for two sides
    • 0.10 x 1.83 x 0.008 for two sides
    • 0.56 x 0.43 x 0.008 for the two fronts
    • for a total of 3.115 square meters which for a thickness of 8 mm leads to 0.025 cubic meters which multiplied by the specific weight of 2500 kg / mc leads to a final weight of 62 kg;
  2. urn structure with empty profile milled 125 kg;
  3. braids in brass tube with steel inside 9 kg;
  4. base urn 95 kg;
  5. Structure and lifting system 40 kg
  6. structure and mattress , mannequin and clothes 28 kg;
  7. missing battery for starry sky lights (to be transported separately);
In Total estimated around 360 kg
If methacrylate was chosen as a material, it would be estimated at a total of around 338 kg

To ensure greater stability, the technicians advised to make some elements that initially had only an ornamental function, collaborating with the structure in addition to increasing some thicknesses. This resulted in weight gain.

At the glass will be added inside an adhesive film type 3m transparent.
