The objective of this study is structural analysis and optimum shape of rope brake. The finite element model was implemented to compute the stress, strain and friction force for rope brake. The ANSYS code was used for this analysis. Structural analysis are effected by position and height of reinforcement figure. The structural safety was examined by an establishment angle of the rope brakes which made apply to housing of the most suitable shape. The optimum shape of the rope brake was decided after stress and strain results were compared and examined.
