The primary goal of the current effort is to design and investigate rotating shaft failures brought on by internal fractures. Shafts are a crucial component of power transmission in both cars and power plants. By employing a shaft, power converts one type of energy into another. Based on this, shaft failures cause significant damage when they are continuously used in power plants, are subjected to extremely high loads, or are exposed to extremely high pressure. Due to a fracture developing on the shaft, its lifespan was reduced. There are several forms of fractures that shorten a machine’s life and decrease its productivity. By integrating the different pieces, the shaft is constructed in 3D using CATIA V5 in order to identify any fractures. Software called ANSYS is used to evaluate 3D models. EN8 and AISI 52100 material characteristics are imported into the ANSYS programme to simulate the shaft and analyse the various materials’ resistance to various shaft-related damages. By importing the design and material parameters, slant crack is produced for various materials and examined. The finite element analysis (FEA) model in ANSYS is subjected to the load on the shaft and the boundary conditions. The data are utilised to calculate the overall deformation and stress. This is also used to assess the likelihood of weight and cost savings in the manufacture of shafts. Modelling and analysis of a solid shaft using finite elements on a healthy and slant fractured shaft is supported by analytical findings.
