This study discusses how to design a system to establish the stability of a forklift fork working with different weights using designing and simulation software. The stresses which appear in the lifting installation of a fork-lift truck at loading-unloading operations are investigated for given input data like load carrying capacity of the fork, the effects of various loads on different positions of the fork regarding stresses and then compare calculated Stresses with allowable material stresses (yield stress/F.O.S). This paper focuses on the significance of Load Centre when subjected to loading at different positions.

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.
