Structural Analysis Of Composite Drive Shaft For Rear Wheel Drive Engine

  • Vishbendra Singh Rajput, Hitesh Agrawal


This paper presents the structural analysis of the drive shaft of vehicle,although shafts are used in
various transmission,but in this paper,the aim is to replace solid shaft in a specific vehicle case by a
tapered hollow shaft,structural analysis of new shaft is in two parts firstly designing the shaft same
structure dimensions limiting values.Secondly, compare it with original solid shaft,on some
parameters such as weight,yield strength,,along with that analysis is performed on Solidworks
stimulation for support result.The results show significant points about the feasibility of using hollow
tapered shaft.
