Experimental and Computational Analysis of Piston Coated With Aluminium Silicon Metal Matrix Composite Material

Poralla Venkatakrishna, Dumpa Suresh Reddy, Prashanth A


A piston is a component of reciprocating engines, reciprocating pumps, gas compressors and pneumatic cylinders, among other similar mechanisms. It is the moving component that is contained by a cylinder and is made gas-tight by piston rings Piston that transfer the combustive gases power to the connecting rod. To improve the efficiency of the engine there is a need to study about the piston. Pistons that are usually made up with alloy steels that show the grate resistant against structural loads. In the project we design a piston by using CatiaV5 design software and we did the structural load analysis by applying various materials such as composites on piston in Ansys workbench software. And performed the chemical and mechanical testing to check the quality and performance of piston, and compare the results of simulation analysis and testing results to make sure design is safe.
