A Hook’s joint, also known as universal joint or universal coupling or carbon joint, is used for connecting two shafts whose axes are non-parallel but intersecting. It generally consists of two hinges located close together, oriented at 90 degree to each other, connected by a cross shaft. The material optimization of universal joint has superior strength, decrease in deformation, equivalent stress, weight & fuel consumption compared to structural steel. Thus in this paper the aim is to replace universal joint by composite material. The following material can be chosen are Aluminum Oxide composite, E-Glass composite. Analysis is being performed on universal joint.
Keywords- Universal joint, composite material.
