In India, Tractor trolley plays an important role in agriculture and construction field for the transportation. Many small industries are involved in the manufacturing of the Tractor trolley. Due to lack of the advance technologies, this product may not properly design. The tractor trolley is designed as per the requirement or by trial and error method of manufacturing. Many times it may be designed without considering the actual loading condition. There are some rules and regulations for the tractor trolley or trailer. The tractor trolley should be as per the Indian Standard specification IS 8213:2000. Many small industries not follow the Indian Standards Specifications Central Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 and safety standard (SS-15) of Automotive Research Association of India. Many road accidents and breakdown or failures occurs due to poor design of the tractor trolley, In present work analytical and finite element analysis approach is used to design the tractor trolley for safe working condition. Need to consider the stress concentration, weight and cost reduction of existing trolley axle. Both the factors are related to each other. In this project, we will do the design related work in CATIA V5 R24 and the analysis work in the ANSYS 15.0 Software. Static analysis i.e. analytical method required for this to compare the ANSYS results. From the comparison reports we will suggest the best possible solution for the Tractor Trolley.
