The paper focuses on structural damage of cross beam arms for brake rod in the car of train. Analysis of cross beam was based on the design and actual conditions of the car application. Investigation the cross beam damage was done by finite element analysis. Based on the finite element analysis results, it is known that damage mechanism and design fault were caused by yield stress of cross beam that exceededthe material yield strength.Futher, a design improvement of cross beam was done by additional structure that can reduce the stress into safe limits.
