P.Manasa , Dr.C.Vijaya Bhaskar Reddy. "Static Analysis Of Tractor Trolley Axle". International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT). V4(9):4183-4187 Sep 2013. ISSN:2231-5381. published by seventh sense research group.


This paper deals with static analysis of tractor trolley axle. In India tractor trolley (or) trailers are very popular and che aper mode for transport of goods and in rural as well as urban areas. Especially various small scale industries are adopting the crude methodologies for designing and manufacturing machine compo nents. One such industry producing tractor trolleys for agricultural use has been identified for this study. Most of the tractor trolley axle used today is rectangular cross section type which in turn leads to increase in the weight of tractor trolley and axle. The soli d modeling of axle is developed by CATIA - V5. Analysis is done using ANSYS work bench. In paper an attempt has made by replacing rectangular cr oss section with circular section. Further static analysis is done to determine von - misses stress, equivalent elastic strain, maximum shear stress, total deformation. Finally the results of rectangular section axle with circular section axle are compared which result in reducing the 20% weight of the circular axle.
