Abstract :

Abstract—Automotive drive shaft is typically fabricated in two pieces in order to increase the fundamental bending natural frequency because it is inversely proportional to the square of beam length and proportional to the square root of specific modulus. Many exploration work have been done to toward this path to replace two pieces drive shaft with single piece made of composites. This makes the single piece hollow shaft subjected to torsional load instability which is more critical in the design of composite shafts. In this specific situation, extensive ways to deal with examine the new composite drive shafts material is discovered to be essential. In this paper an attempt has been made to check the suitability of one piece composite drive shaft with various composite material combinations to satisfy the functional requirements. Firstly, a finite element model of composite drive shaft made of Steel, Glass/epoxy, Graphite/epoxy and Carbon/epoxy Composite is developed to analyze for static, modal & buckling analysis using ANSYS. From the results obtained, it is observed that composites are having better shear strength, bending natural frequency, and less weight compared to steel and Carbon/epoxy has good buckling strength capability as compared with other composites. These Finite element analysis results are compared with analytical values and MATLAB coding observed that the single piece composite drive shaft is better suitable for driveline applications. Keywords— Composite Drive Shaft, Finite element analysis, Shear Strength, Buckling Load, natural frequency, MATLAB, ANSYS
