ANALYSIS OF WEIGHT REDUCTION IN CONNECTING ROD BY USING DIFFERENT MATERIALS IN ANSYS
Connecting rods design was drawn using Autodesk inventor software and save in 'STEP' format. Then, the drawing of connecting rod (STEP format) imported into ANSYS software. In this analysing software, can makes analysis to connecting rod of different material such as Stainless Steel, Magnesium and High strength carbon fiber to compare the deformation, stress, strain, shear stress safety factor to carry better performance and longer life cycle can be archived using different Materials. The connecting rod is one important part in an engine, connecting rod as an intermediate link between the piston and the crankshaft of an engine it is responsible for transmission of the up and down motion of the piston to the crankshaft of the engine. So, the project involves various processes such as process design and analysis of connecting rod.
