Tripti S. Audichya,  Prof. Dr. Pravin P. Rathod
In the modern Automobile Industries, where the changing trends & technologies exists and keeps upgrading. And with the mining segments getting deeper and multiple product base requirements, the Automobile markets demands for all new variant type in accordance to the Driveline application. In the current paper the most heated issue due to such changing trends has been put forward with reference to the Industrial based facts & Case studies. We have put up the basic information of the primary types of Heavy Application Propeller shafts & Its Key Components in detail that comprises of the UJ Kit, Tube Shaft, Flange Yoke, Slip Yoke along with its functioning. In the current work we have presented the analysis of two different shaft designs or say Variants used & the practical fitment trial job has been conducted. Also it presents the weight reduction & Cost Reduction features of using a different shaft design along with the improvement in terms of serviceability.
Keywords- Propeller Shaft, Variants, Modularization
