Latest research on material with vast material combination gives option for replacing the conventional material with that of composite which helps in reducing the material cost, high strength and higher specific stiffness of composite materials. This work deals with replacement of conventional material with that of multi-layer composite material like e-glass/epoxy, high strength and high modulus carbon/epoxy composite drive shaft for automobile shaft for an automotive application. The design
