Design Analysis of Connecting Rod and Crank Shaft

K. Kalyan Kumar, E. Sadanandam, K. Veeranjanailu


The connecting rod is the intermediate member between the piston and the crankshaft. Its primary function is to transmit the push and pull from the piston pin to the crank pin and thus convert the reciprocating motion of the piston into rotary motion of the crank.In our project we design a connecting rod for a diesel engine for two different materials Carbon Steel,forzen steel and Aluminum alloy. Both the designs are modeled in 3D modeling software CATIA.The designs are validated by performing the structural analysis on connecting rod under different load conditions in analysis software Ansys 14.5. In structural analysis, the constraint is STRESS, STRAIN and deformation. We have done static analysis on connecting rod. Optimization is done to verify the better material for connecting rod
