For the High-Luminosity LHC a new Mechanical Global Support frame for Strip Endcap of the Atlas Inner Tracker (ITk) (EC for short) is being developed, for this a carbon/epoxy laminate design and prototype have been produced. To match the design to the requirements a finite element model of the system was created for an initial prediction of the mechanical performance, having produced a prototype now allows for validation of individual components and the assembled system to the calculated values.

This talk will bring you from the initial design to building both the physical and simulated variants of the EC, to the current status with the comparison of the results found.
