Abstract: Crane hook are highly significant component used for lifting the load with the help of chain or links. In the present paper a crane hook is purchased from the local market for Finite element analysis. The hook was tested on the UTM machine in tension to locate the area having maximum stress and to locate the yield point. The model of hook is prepared in CAE software having dimension and material similar to the crane hook which was purchased from the market. The results obtained were compared with theoretical analysis. Then cross section in which minimum stress induced for given load was modified through FEM.
Keywords: Finite Element Method (FEM), Crane Hook, Curved Beam, Universal Testing Machine (UTM).
