Analysis of Automobile Shaft for Optimizing Weight by Using Fem
Composites have been increasingly used in many engineering fields. Polymer composites are now widely used to build automotive components due to their exceptional rigidity and strength properties. Composite shafts for automotive applications are among the most recent research areas. A weight reduction can be achieved mainly with the introduction of a better material. The conventional system uses a metal shaft and has inherent limitations such as weight, corrosion, elasticity, vibration, storage and manufacturing problems increase with increasing shaft diameter. Advanced composites offer the opportunity to improve the transmission shaft by reducing weight, bearing load, misalignment and life cycle costs through the use of strategic materials, increasing the properties of resistance to fatigue, flexibility and vibration damping. The objective is the design and analysis of composite hollow shafts made of low density carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) for motor vehicles. And To investigate the vibrational effect of propeller shaft at different mode condition using FEA by ANSYS 18.2. In this result are the total weight of carbon fiber shaft is reduce. The total weight of the carbon fiber shaft is 2.6 kg is less then to previous material. And the previous study material of weight is 3.2kg.
