Chain drives are most important systems used in industry to carry the products and to transmit the power. But limitation is the chain drive suffers premature elongation due to wear and so that the costs of production will increases and ultimately the cost of operations also increases. In case of power transmission chain, the major factor affected on failure of chain is tensile load. It will be helpful to reduce the cost and time of production related to chain assembly of above said industries. The power transmission chain is used to transmit the power which deals with different load conditions. This causes wear and tear of components of chains and hence unexpected failure and costly production. In present work the study of different failures of chain links under different loading conditions using Mild Steel will be done. It was determined that maximum amount of weight of chain drive is covered by outer link and inner link. The chain is analyzed using Hyper-mesh and ANSYS software. The static loads are applied on the chain drive and analysis is carried out. The test is carried out to check the conformance of the existing design. The chain drive is optimized by changing it to carbon fiber material. Based on these results, best feasible design solution is proposed and validated experimentally.
