Steering feel and vehicle steering motion is affected by wheel torques from propulsion, especially for front wheel drive cars. Often these problems are referred to as “torque steer”. Many systems interact to cause these problems: propulsion, steering and suspension. Torque steer supporters are not just the differential (contact, selflocking impact, Torsion differential), yet additionally the contribution from the beginning auto geometry, for example, street conditions (grating and surface), the vehicle state (cornering, moving, increasing speed) and weight dispersion (stacking). Also, the suspension configuration contributes too, similar to the suspension geometry (boss balance, camber, caster, (resiliences), the tire quality (conicity, wear, profile) and wheel geometry (estimate, consistency, wheel counterbalance). At long last, with respect to the transmission patrons, the motor (torque, arrangement) and drive shafts (arrangement, length, symmetry) are benefactors also. The term, Drive shaft is utilized to allude to a pole, which is utilized for the exchange of movement starting with one point then onto the next. Though the poles, which impel (drive the question ahead) are alluded to as the propeller shafts. Propellers are typically connected with boats and planes as they are pushed in water or air utilizing a propeller fan. However the drive shaft of the car is likewise alluded to as the propeller shaft in light of the fact that separated from transmitting the rotating movement from the front end to the backside of the vehicle, these poles additionally move the vehicle forward In car, driveshaft is the association between the transmission and the back hub are utilized by two-piece steel drive shaft comprises of three all inclusive joints, an inside supporting bearing and a section, which expands the aggregate weight of a car vehicle and declines fuel effectiveness. In this paper the research has been carried out for the designing and Finite Element Analysis of Propeller shaft. Analysis includes Structural Analysis (Linear static stress and Modal) and. Tortional load is required to calculate for the Static Stress Analysis and natural frequency of the system. CATIA V5 R17 is used for generating Geometric CAD modeling of the gear box housing. Hypermesh 3D is used as a Preprocessor for meshing and generating FE Model. ANSYS has been used as a Solver and Postprocessor. The results obtained from the FEA is as discussed in details.
