In this research paper design and analysis of wire ropes used in elevator have been presented. The main objective of this study is to find the best practices on handling wire ropes for safety and to reduce the downtime of elevators due to wire rope failures. Design calculations have been done to calculate the apt dimensions and design is constructed on Auto Desk inventor software and the analysis have been performed using Ansys. Two configurations of the wire ropes have been studied and from this result it can be concluded that the design of wire rope is possible to relieve mechanical handling and to improve the design of wire ropes making it more durable by possible inclusion of new materials which in turn increases the efficiency and life of wire ropes without compromising safety.
Key words: Mechanical engineering / safety research / numerical analysis / transportation
