Design Optimization And Analysis Of An Automotive Manual Transmission Shaft Using Titanium Alloy (Ti6al4v)

Abstract –Intent of this work is to design an automotive manual transmission shaft for its better performance. Therefore it must be strong enough to bear the needs, whilst avoiding too much additional weight as that would increase their inertia. So here the work deals with the design constraints such as natural frequency (resonant condition) and static strength which are subjected to torque. Sensitivity analysis and optimization on the best among material is done to optimize the constraint in the aim to get minimum weight and stress. Genetic Algorithm, one among the numerical methods, is used here. An effective techniques are carried out using finite element analysis software which are commercially available. Finally the weight and stress optimized for different materials are compared with the titanium alloy. Hence results revealed that the Ti6Al4V has the better result than other which are considered.
