Abstract: This work presents a general analysis of drive-in racks, evaluating the influence of each of their components on global stability. In this study, a full-scale test of a drive-in system was carried out. Finite element models were also developed to evaluate global structural stability and component influence on system behavior. The experimental and numerical results show that the connections and base plates have the most significant influence on the system’s behavior. This influence is analyzed, an equation that predicts base plate resistance is then proposed, and its results are compared with experimental and numerical results.
