Abstract: PEEK is an established material that is used in a variety of applications. PEEK has replaced metals like Aluminum and brass for cost and weight saving reasons as well as “metallic reactions”. It is also the one polymer that can meet the needs of more demanding applications where very high or low temperatures or chemical resistance are key operational parameters PEEK is an ideal replacement for Aluminum alloy as well as other types of metal tubing, and even glass for weight reduction, comparable strength/mass, chemical resistance, hardness, and low extractable. PEEK is particularly useful in the automobile industry for its weight. In an application where 2 grams can make a difference and weight is directly correlated to fuel cost, light weight PEEK is superior material matches aluminum in mechanical properties, and is more resistant to fluids. In this project work the entire wheel design of two wheeler was chosen and analyzed by applying different load and redesign the wheel again to minimize the deformation and material will be changed from aluminum to PEEK(polyether ether ketone )The following materials were chosen:-
PEEK with 30% Glass fiber
PEEK-90 HMF 20
PEEK-90 HMF 40
Wheel design of two wheeler is made by using NX 7.5, and Analysis has been done by Ansys 13.0 software to determine the various stresses, strain and fatigue life of the wheel. The software has helped us really to achieve our goal.As the whole analysis is done by the means of software therefore result and observation are trustworthy and meet with our expectation.
