Design and Analysis of Composite Shaft Using Ansys Simulation
Ibsar Khan | Prof. Dr. Sachin Meshram
Abstract: In this project, designing a drive shaft with composite materials. The traditional drive shaft is made of single material like steel and in two parts, which relate to the help of universal joints this causes increase in weight and sometimes failure at joints at high loads. Hence designing a shaft in single part without any joints in between. The shaft designed is lighter in weight which will help in increasing efficiency. After designing the shaft, analyzing the traditional steel shaft and the composite shaft using analysis tools like Catia and Ansys, and compare the values of both the shafts, this was theoretical checking. Experiment is conducted to check the torsional forces in both the shafts on a torque tester and comparison is done to check whether the composite shaft will carry loads like steel drive shaft without failure.
