Abstract

Composites are widely used in the field of aerospace, automotive structures etc. as the material possesses extensive applications and greater mechanical properties. Among the applications of composites, the shafts made of composites are giving a high strength to weight ratio, stability and efficiency. In the present scenario, filament winding has been recognized as an economical technique to manufacture composite products with high level properties. In filament winding process, resin bathed fibre winded on a mandrel having cylindrical shape. The aim of the project is to develop a low cost filament winding machine and using the machine to develop an E-glass/Epoxy composite hollow shaft to make a study on the torsional characteristics of the composite shaft and thereby concluding on the effectiveness of developed filament winding machine and the specimen developed.
