The main aim of this project is to conduct FEM analysis and to optimize the design with composite materials. The purpose of analyze is to determine the displacement, stress, strain and forces in structure caused by load that do not promote significant inertia and damping effects. Now-a-day’s research on material with vast material combination gives option for replacing the conventional material with that of composite which helps in reducing the material cost, high strength and higher specific stiffness. The design parameters were optimized with the sophisticated material like glass, carbon and graphite with suitable resins. The objectives are to minimize the weight of propeller drive shaft. For this study, conventional FEA software like ANSYS is used. ANSYS is software in finite element analysis to enhance the profile of structural member with optimization due to high specific modulus and strength.
