Aliva Tripathy The propeller shaft, sometimes also known as Cordon shaft or drive shaft is the medium by which the power from the engine driven gearbox is transmitted to the driving axles. It is made of steel and whether fitted in a front or rear wheel drive or between the main gearbox and an auxiliary gearbox, conforms to a similar pattern in which, one or two universal joints are incorporated.
If required length of propeller shaft is more, then centre bearing is placed at centre of the shaft. The shaft is tubular in cross section and not enclosed in any outer casing or tube.
It is fitted with a universal joint at each end, used on all heavy commercial vehicles and on most types of cars and light vehicles. The propeller shaft is smaller in diameter than the open type and is supported by roller bearings inside the torque tube at the front and rear; in some models there is no central bearing. There is only one universal joint fitted and this is located at the front end adjacent to the gearbox.
It is fitted with a universal joint at each end, one to the gearbox main shaft through flange and the other to the driving axle bevel pinion shaft. On vehicles where the propeller shaft is comparatively long the shaft is made up of two portions connected by an additional universal joint and supported to the chassis cross member by a bearing.
Gear Change and Selector Mechanism Open Type Propeller Shaft b The front universal joint is splined to the propeller shaft and provides a telescope action for any fore and aft movement of the rear axle relative to the gearbox. When reassembling, the yokes of both universal joints must be in line and the correct position is usually indicated by arrows on the universal joints sleeve and on the propeller shaft.
As this tube resists the torque and twisting motion of the rear axle casing due to the application of brakes and reaction of the drive, it is named torque tube. The rear end of the shaft is attached to the bevel pinion shaft by a splined sleeve, which is secured by rivets to both the shafts to prevent longitudinal movement. Carefully lower rear end of the propeller shaft on the ground.
Note:- Do not remove the sliding yoke from the propeller shaft. Carefully lower the propeller shaft on the ground. Similarly, clean the mating surface on the centre bearing bracket and the chassis cross member.
Automotive Axle & Propeller Shaft Market to Reach $268 billion by 2022
View Report Impending need of fuel efficient vehicles owing to increasing carbon footprint has fueled the demand of light weight automotive components. Moreover, increase in adoption of all wheel drive AWD vehicles has further spurred the demand for live axles and propeller shafts. Passenger car segment is expected to maintain its dominant position throughout the forecast period. Propeller shafts are widely used in vehicles where the distance between engine and differential is large. Increase in production of vehicles and increasing demand for comfort while driving the vehicle boosts the market growth. Irrespective of these challenges, increase in demand for fuel efficient vehicle is expected to provide opportunity for the key market players in this market to provide low cost and fuel efficient components.

FABRICATION OF CHAINLESS BICYCLE (SHAFT DRIVEN BICYCLE)
Usually in two wheelers, chain and sprocket method is used to drive the back wheel. But in this project, the Engine is connected at the front part of the vehicle. The shaft of the engine is connected with a long rod. The other side of the long rod is connected with a set of bevel gears. The bevel gears are used to rotate the shaft in 90 o angle.
Two Wheeler with Propeller Shaft
LinkedIn shares The drive shaft likewise called propeller shaft or prop shaft is a part of the drive train in a vehicle, with the reason for conveying torque from the transmission to the differential, which at that point transmits this torque to the wheels so as to move the vehicle. The drive shaft is essentially used to exchange torque between parts that are isolated by a separation, since various segments must be in various areas in the vehicle. A front-motor back wheel drive vehicle must have a lengthy drive shaft associating the back pivot to the transmission since these parts are on inverse sides of the vehicle. Drive shafts are utilized diversely in various vehicles, differing significantly in autos with particular setups for front-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, and the recently referenced front-motor back wheel drive.
History[ edit ] The term drive shaft first appeared during the mid 19th century. In the s, the term began to be used in a manner closer to the modern sense. In , for example, Battles referred to the shaft between the transmission and driving trucks of his Climax locomotive as the drive shaft,  and Stillman referred to the shaft linking the crankshaft to the rear axle of his shaft-driven bicycle as a drive shaft. Built in , today this vehicle is in the collection of the Smithsonian Institution. A pair of short drive shafts is commonly used to send power from a central differential , transmission , or transaxle to the wheels. A truck two section propeller shaft Front-engine, rear-wheel drive[ edit ] Main article: Front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout In front-engined, rear-drive vehicles, a longer drive shaft is also required to send power the length of the vehicle. Two forms dominate: The torque tube with a single universal joint and the more common Hotchkiss drive with two or more joints.
