Aiming at solving the fracture problem of a ocean ship transmission shaft. Firstly, the ocean ship transmission shaft was constrained modal analysis by adopting finite elements method, the analysis results show that the first natural frequency was close to its excitation frequency, so the ocean ship transmission shaft resonance would be caused. Secondly, the ocean ship transmission shaft was modal test by adopting hammering method, the test results show that modal test frequency was basically consistent with the modal simulation frequency. Thirdly, the diameter and thickness of ocean ship transmission shaft tube were optimized and analyzed by adopting OptiStruct software, the optimal values were obtained. The ocean ship transmission shaft first two modal frequencies were all outside the excitation range after optimization, so the resonance would be maximally avoided. Lastly, the ocean ship transmission shaft was vehicle test, the test results show that the gearbox shell vibration was greatly reduced, the optimization effect was obvious, so failure problem was successfully solved.
