The work in this paper primarily focuses on the modelling and analysis of a plane's propeller blade for strength. The geometry of a propeller blade is a sophisticated 3D model. CATIA V5 R20 is utilised to generate the blade model, which necessitates the usage of high-end modelling CAD software. This document provides a brief overview of Fiber Reinforced Plastic materials as well as the benefits of employing composite propellers over traditional metallic propeller blades. The purpose of this research is to use finite element analysis to analyse the metal and composite strength of the propeller blade. We conducted static and modal analysis for isotropic materials using ANSYS software, as well as linear layer analysis for orthotropic materials. FEA methods were used to investigate two distinct types of propellers, namely aluminium, E-glass, and carbon fibre.
