Static Analysis of a Load-Carrying Hanger Assembly
Maleek D. Montgomery, Mir M. Hayder, Mohamad Mustafa

In this study, a static analysis of a load-carrying hanger assembly was performed using SolidWorks Simulation software. The study was carried out in two stages. In the first stage, a suitable 3D model of a load-carrying hanger assembly was developed, and in the next step, stress analysis was conducted keeping one side of the assembly fixed to a wall. The main focus was to understand where the maximum stress was developed when the load was applied from the top of the hanger. In addition to the stress data, deformation data was analyzed to develop a better understanding. Results show that for all loads applied to the hanger, the maximum stress is developed on the upper horizontal part where it is attached to the wall. None of the three parts failed/yielded due to loads tested in the study.
