Abstract: Substituting composite structures for conventional metallic structures has many advantages because of higher specific stiffness and higher specific strength of composite materials. This work deals with the replacement of conventional two-piece steel drive shafts with one-piece automotive hybrid aluminum/composite drive shaft & was developed with a new manufacturing method, in which a carbon fiber epoxy composite layer was co-cured on the inner surface of an aluminum tube rather than wrapping on the outer surface to prevent the composite layer from being damaged by external impact and absorption of moisture. The optimal stacking sequence of the composite layer was determined considering the thermal residual stresses of interface between the aluminum tube and the composite layer calculated by finite element analysis. Press fitting method for the joining of the aluminum/composite tube and steel yokes was devised to improve reliability and to reduce manufacturing cost, compared to other joining methods such as adhesively bonded, bolted or riveted and welded joints. Protrusion shapes on the inner surface of steel yoke were created to increase the torque capability of the press fitted joint. The design parameters were optimized with the objective of minimizing the weight of hybrid aluminum/composite drive shaft &increase in torque capability compared with a conventional two-piece steel drive shaft.
