Abstract

Due to weight savings, or when traditional material cannot be used, composite materials are widely used in aircraft, helicopter and automotive applications. One of these common applications are drive shafts. Despite its simple appearance, a thin-walled cylindrical shaft is quite complex to design because it must meet several conflicting requirements. These requirements include: the natural frequency should be outside the working frequency range, it must endure the applied torsional torque without failure or buckling, and it should be accomplished within a low price and low weight range. In this project, we will analyze the composite driveshaft to explicitly bring out the assumptions and the limitations of the results obtained. More specifically, the project will analyze the torsional stability , the natural frequency for transverse bending vibration, ply stresses, laminate failure torsional vibration frequencies and the effect of centrifugal force.
