DEEPAK KUMAR RAKESH, DR. R.S. SHIKARWAR, PROF. RANJEET KUMAR
In this review paper, we have studied various recent research articles of different authors for finding out the parameters, variables and factors which affects the structural performance of cotter joint which used to support various rotating and stationary shafts. Cotter joint is frequently used in providing base for shafts which are continuously rotating and have a large length. It suffers various forces and stresses in the condition of loading. Minimizing these stresses is of very much importance and we find out the variables and factors such as material of construction, optimization methods, stress concentration, geometrical dimensions and mechanical construction, finite element analysis meshing methods, weight reduction and life cycle. These are the parameters which can be optimized for getting better results of structural performance enhancement.
