Gear design and its analysis plays a major role in a mechanical field. There are many applications such as automobile, aerospace, marine. In these applications power transmission gear is to be critically analyzed. Now days more researchers are focusing on gear design using composite material to achieve better results than existing conventional material. In this work design, analysis and development have been carried out composite material spur gear which can be used for marine application. The spur gear is modelled in Solidworks 2016 & imported into Ansys workbench for static structural analysis. Comparison have been made between Aluminium alloy and new composite material on the basis of Von-Mises stress, Total deformation at different torque value have been analysesd. From this analysis it is concluded that if the torque increases, Von-misses stress and deformation of both composite and aluminium alloy are increasing. But when compared to aluminium alloy, composite materials have indicated lesser values of stresses and deformation. So it is feasible to use this composite material spur gear for the marine applications.
