## Structural Analysis of Yoke Part in Design of Driveshaft

#### Onur ŞEN [1] , Mert Can KAHYALAR [2]

Driveshaft used for transmitting torque and rotation, is one of the most important components in motor vehicles. It is required to connect the other components of the drivetrain such as transmission and differential to each other. Basically, comprises of one or more universal joints, yoke parts, splined parts and sometime center support bearing. Each compo-nent on it performs different functions such as angular and axial move-ment. Every component on driveshaft are subjected to torsion and shear stress. Thus, in the design and analysis processes each component should be sufficiently strong against to these all. In this study, numerical and an-alytical methods to design the weld yoke, were investigated and com-pared with each other. In the numerical studies finite element analysis (FEA) implemented by using two different loading conditions, force cou-ple and moment. And the strength formulas were used in the scope of an-alytical method. As a result of the study, the stress on critical section ob-tained from FEA, supports the results from analytical method. Thus, ana-lytical method can be used for the weld yoke design and the FEA can be implemented by using any of force couple or moment as loading type.
