Abstract:
ABSTRACT In this thesis an investigation is carried out on Composite Drive Shaft for different Stacking Sequence and for different fiber angle orientation. A one-piece drive shaft for rear wheel drive automobile was designed optimally using E-Glass/Epoxy and High modulus (HM) Carbon/Epoxy composites. In this thesis an Analytical and ANSYS Software has been successfully applied to minimize the weight of shaft which is subjected to the constraints such as torque transmission, Static Structural capacities, Torsional Buckling Torque. The results of Analytical Analysis are used to perform static analysis using ANSYS software. The results show the stacking sequence and fiber angle orientation of shaft strongly affects static strength as well as the Buckling Capacity of shaft. It is possible to optimize the 83% weight than the Steel Shaft and 43% weight than the Aluminum Shaft in case of Composite Shaft. Keywords: - E-Glass/Epoxy, ANSYS
