Stress Analysis of Crane Hook with Different Cross Sections Using ANSYS
Abstract: These Crane hook is very significant component used for lifting the load with help of chain or wire ropes. Crane hooks are highly liable components that are typically used for industrial purposes. Failure of a crank hook mainly depends upon various geometric variables as well as material properties. In this analysis the material properties of a hook kept constant throughout the analysis and stress is to be reduced by varying different geometric parameters. The selected sections are Circular, Trapezoidal and T-section. The area remains constant while changing the dimensions for the three different sections. The crane hook is modeled using CATIA V5 software. The stress analysis is done by using ANSYS 14.5 workbench Educational version. It is found that T cross section yields minimum stresses at the given load of 50000kN for constant cross section among three cross sections. The stress distribution pattern is verified for its correctness on model of crane hook using Winkler-Bach theory for curved beams.
