Abstract:

Substituting composite structures for conventional metallic structures has many advantages because of higher specific stiffness and strength of composite materials. This work deals with the replacement of conventional steel propeller shafts with Kevlar and high modulus carbon/epoxy composite propeller shafts for an automotive application. The design parameters were optimized with the objective of minimizing the weight of composite propeller shaft. The design optimization also showed significant potential improvement in the performance of propeller shaft.
