The design of automotive or industrial power screw jack involves many interrelated parameters. It is necessary to understand this interrelationship and the constraints involved to obtain the optimum design of power screw jack. Thus, Optimization play a key role in field of engineering application. In our work power screw is machine component is to be optimized using the graphical & MATLAB software It is essential to determine stresses in local areas and other areas using three dimensional, symmetric and axisymmetric models, the preliminary conclusion is that finite element analysis is an extremely powerful tool for design and optimization of power screw. Depending on the desired solutions, there are different methods that offer faster run times and less error. The recommended methods included symmetric models using shell elements and axisymmetric models using solid elements. Design optimization of power screw concerns with the idea to get optimized design dimensions of power screw to minimize weight under given set of constraint by taking pitch & mean diameter of as design variables and screw should be self locking assume coeffient of friction between screw and nut is 0.16, screw is safe in buckling, Permissible stress should be less than or equal to yield strength/FOS, screw should be safe in shear failure as design constraints. Further the verification of optimized graphical solution for minimum weight is compared with MATLAB software.

A power screw (or power screw), also known as a lead screw or translation screw, is a screw designed to translate turning motion into linear motion. Common applications are machine slides (such as in machine tools), vises, presses, and jacks Power screws are manufactured in the same way as other thread forms. A power screw can be used in conjunction with split nut. Power screws are classified by the geometry of their thread. V-threads are less suitable for Power screws than others such as Acme because they have more friction between the threads. Their threads are designed to induce this friction to keep the fastener from loosening. Power screws, on the other hand, are designed to minimize friction. Therefore, in most commercial and industrial use, V-threads are avoided for Power screw use. Nevertheless, V-threads are sometimes successfully used as Power screws, for example on microlathes and micromills. Square thread Square threads are named after their square geometry. They are the most efficient, having the least friction, so they are often used for screws that carry high power. But they are also the most difficult to machine, and are thus the most expensive.

Acme threads have a 29° thread angle, which is easier to machine than square threads. They are not as efficient as square threads, due to the increased friction induced by the thread angle. Buttress thread Buttress threads are of a triangular shape. These are used where the load force on the screw is only applied in one direction. They are as efficient as square threads in these applications, but are easier to manufacture.

2. Optimization by graphical method
Optimization is the act of obtaining the best result under given circumstances. Optimization can be defined as the process of finding the condition that give the maximum or minimum value of a function. 1)Design variable:Any system or component is defined by a set of quantities some of which are viewed as variable during the deign process. In general, certain quantities are usually fixed at outset . All other quantities are treated as variable in design process and are called design variable xi =1,2,3,....,n. X1 = pitch X2 = mean diameter Design variable :X1 X2 2) Objective function :Def :- the critarion with respect to which the design is optimized, when expressed as a function of design variable, is known as criterion or merit or objctive function. to minimize the weight of power screw The screw length is 340 mm. considering the following constraints. i) The screw should be self locking assume coefficient of friction between screw & nut is 0.16. ii) The screw is safe in buckling. iii) Permissible stress should be less than or equal to yield strength/FOS. iv)The screw should be safe in shear failure. v) Tensile strength should be between 630-710 N/mm2

In this we have selected one power screw jack. For optimization there are so many methods, we used graphical method approach & with MATLAB programming software.
