Design and Analysis of Pulley Block for Recovery of Damaged Tracked Vehicle

Authors(3) :-Rashmi S, Anil Kumar, Srinivas Reddy M

The recovery of damaged vehicle in hostile environment may be challenging under various circumstances. For these operations, Recovery vehicle should be integrated with a heavy duty double capstan winch along with a pulley block. Depending upon the recovery capacity, winch pulling force can be amplified by using different pulley block setups. Since Loads on pulley block changing, so its components would experience different magnitudes of loads. In this paper we have discussed the design and analysis of critical components of pulley block which includes pulley, triangular junction block and Jaw Plate. Here, Design of Pulley block carried out from conceptual level. FE results and Theoretical calculation are shown good agreement between them. For FE analysis, Hyper works and NASTRAN used as pre/post processor and solver respectively.
