Method to Maintain Minimum Stresses in Automotive Transmission Shafts 2013-01-2449

This paper deals with an analytical engineering method to reduce the stresses in a shaft. The specification and design of transmission shaft is of special significance in the layout of the vehicle transmissions. In this paper an analytical engineering calculation of typical automotive transmission shaft' stresses is done. Later calculated stresses are validated by C.A.E analysis. In the calculations most of the shaft design methodology is shown in detail. The calculations reduce the C.A.E iteration to almost to 1 as correlation is found between calculations and C.A.E analysis.
