Abstract
A composite material made up of two or more elements/materials with extensive different physical or chemical properties. When they combined together, this possesses unique characteristics. In an automobile, propeller shaft must be more durable and able to transfer more power. And withstand twisting and bending effect. Also the weight of shaft must be lesser to overcome inertia and bending moment. In general propeller shafts made up of steel. So in this paper we replaced steel with composite materials to enhance the required properties and to overcome the problems occurred in conventional steel shafts. Also we optimize the size of the shaft to reduce the overall weight without affecting the strength of the shaft. Basically the interchanged materials are composites like Carbon Epoxy, E glass Epoxy. Also we compared the results of steel material to composite shaft though manual calculations and ANSYS results. The design is done by CATIA v5 software and post processing is done by ANSYS 15.0.
