Abstract

Railway system in India plays a vital role in transportation. The demand of prolong service life and reliability
of the various component are always considered as critical issue. The component of the study has been obtained
from the Central Railway, Electric Loco Shed Ajani Nagpur M.S India. In the present study the failure of one of
the components of traction link (Pivot Housing) is carefully investigated. This paper presents theoretical and finite
element analysis (FEA) results for the pivot housing assembly which predicts the failure load and determines ultimate
failure strength. A significant result of these studies includes increasing the bending strength of Pivot Housing. The
measured stresses were in good agreement with theoretical results. To get the additional insight, finite element
analysis results are presented and compared to both.
