    Abstract :

    This paper deals with design and analysis of a drive shaft. During the transmission of power from the engine to the differential gear box of a rear wheel drive vehicle there is a problem of failure after long run of the vehicle due to low specific stiffness and strength of the material. The drive shaft should be capable to provide smooth and uninterrupted power transmission at varying speeds required by the vehicle.A single piece drive shaft can be preferred in present market instead of a two piece drive shaft so that the weight of the drive shaft can be reduced. Presently used materials in the market for manufacturing are Cast Iron, Cast Steel. The purpose of this paper is to design the drive shaft made of Ni-Cr steel and compare it with steel material. The design is done in Solid works software and analyzed using ANSYS. The justification has been done by considering a full literature review.
