Abstract: The objective of the present work is to design an automotive manual transmission shaft for its better performance with the optimal weight. Increase in their inertia plays a major role in the more weight. Therefore it must be strong enough to bear the needs, whilst avoiding too much additional weight as that would. So here the work deals with the optimization are performed based on the design constraints such as natural frequency (resonant condition) and static strength which are subjected to torque. The local and Global Sensitivity analysis and optimization on the best among material is done to optimize the constraint in the aim to get minimum weight and stress. The numerical methods, used are genetic algorithm .The commercial FEA solvers are used for the numerical investigation. Finally the weight and stress optimized for different materials are compared with the PPT with CNT 0.05%. Hence results revealed that the PP with CNT 0.05 % has the better result than other which are considered.
