Abstract


Effective utilization of hand brakes for parking the vehicle on an inclined plane is well established. In addition to hand brakes are the wheel chocks which are the wedges made up of different suitable materials that are placed very close to the wheels to avoid the vehicle to move accidently over a slope when stationary. Wheel chocks are placed as added safety measures along with the parking brakes to prevent the vehicles from rolling when parked over an inclined street. Wheel chocks widely used are made up of steel, aluminum, concrete or even a high quality plastic can also be used to manufacture it. Since use of plastics for wheel chocks makes it light weighted, handy and cost effective, wheel chocks made of steel has been converted to wheel chocks that are made in plastics. The main aim of this project is the cost reduction and weight reduction which makes the chock both handy and economical. To find out the maximum displacement when any external force is applied on wheel chock, stress analysis has been carried out using ansys software
