Design, Analysis and Material Optimization of Laminated Crane Hook: A Review

[Sunil J. Tiwari, Vivek Padole] Volume 2: Issue 3, Sept 2015, pp 109-111
Abstract Ladle hooks attached to spreader / ladle beam are used primarily to lift liquid metal ladles & transport molten metal safely in the steel industry. The laminated hooks are also used to handle Tundish, Overflow boxes, Launder etc. The objective of this project is to design the laminated ladle hook and optimization of the same using Finite Element Analysis tool without compromising on the strength & keeping the safety within the specified limits as per the standard codes.
