Modelling and Simulation of Below-the-Hook Lifting Device Balanced C-hook for Load to Investigate the Static and Model Analysis for Various Grades of Steels by Numerical Method




Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices will enable easy loading, unloading and transportation of heavy metal coils. A balanced c-hook is one of the widely used Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices works by inserting its lower arm inside the hole of coil. Multiple variations of c hooks are being used based on different load requirements, and different applications like paper roll c hooks to transport heavy paper rolls, spring loaded c hooks to reduce weight by avoiding counter weights etc. Structural and mechanical lifters may be modified or re-assessed, provided that such alterations are analyzed and approved. Balanced c-Hook are to be designed by considering forces imposed by the lifted load, the weights of the device’s parts, since balanced c hooks are subjected repeated loading and unloading, there is probability of failure due stress concentration. To prevent chances of failure, Prior study is required on this; the materials which are generally used for the C hook are considered for a particular loading condition of 10 Tons, Design of the bellow the hooks is done by numerical method. Modeling and Simulations are carried to determine the various factors like deformation, stresses generated and mode shapes. The comparison among all the selected materials is done to check the suitability of the material to use as a balanced C hook. For the generation of CAD model of C -Hook various geometrical features and Dimensions are selected as per the specification from ASME B30.20 standard. To investigate statics stress results and model are obtained from Finite element Method.  from the results of the analysis it is observed that results obtained are in close match with each other and maximum stress concentration occurs at inner most surface.
