Abstract: Hooks joint (universal Coupling) is a very important for transmitting power from one shaft to another. Sometimes the failure in this assembly takes place due to improper design and analyzing .The aim of this paper is to present a finite element analysis predicting the behavior of hooks joint under different loads on different parts. The software package ANSYS is used to model the joint. This paper may help to improve the quality of hooks joint.
Keywords: Hooks joint, ANSYS, Finite element analysis ,Von Mises Equation.
