In this work, Rectangular beam type load cell is considered for stress and strain analysis by using finite element method. The stress analysis is carried out to minimize the weight of Rectangular beam- type load cell without exceeding allowable stress. The intention of the work is to create the geometry of Rectangular beam-type load cell to find out the optimum solution. FEM software HyperWorks11.0.0.39 is using for parametric optimization of Rectangular beam type load cell. If the stress value is within the permissible range, then certain dimensions will be modified to reduce the amount of material needed. The procedure will be repeated until design changes satisfying all the criteria. Experimental verification will be carried out by photo-elasticity technique with the help of suitable instrumentation like Polariscope. Using Photo-elasticity technique, results are crosschecked which gives results very close to FEM technique. Experimental results will be compared with FEM results. With the aid of these tools the designer can develop and modify the design parameters from initial design stage to finalize basic geometry of load cell.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
