Design of Composite Driveshafts for Automotive Applications 2004-01-0485

This work presents a comprehensive approach to design driveshafts for automotive applications. The two important aspects of driveshaft design, viz., (i) design of composite shaft tube, and (ii) design of adhesively bonded tubular joint between the yoke and the tube are discussed. Based on the closed-form analytical solutions preliminary design tools are developed to aid quick analysis and design of composite driveshaft for automotive applications. Furthermore, detailed finite element analyses are performed to validate the preliminary design tools.
