Abstract
Crane hooks are highly liable components that are typically used for industrial purposes. Failure of a crane hook mainly depends on three major factors i.e. dimension, material. In this paper load carrying capacity is studied by varying the cross sections. The selected sections are I-section and T-section. The area remains constant while changing the dimensions for the two different sections. The crane hook is modelled using SOLIDWORKS software. The stress analysis is done using ANSYS 14.0 workbench Educational version. It is found that T cross section yields minimum stresses at the given load of 6 ton for constant cross section area among two cross sections. The stress distribution pattern is verified for its correctness on model of crane hook using Winkler-Bach theory for curved beams.
