Paper Title
Analysis and Optimization of Connecting Rod used in Heavy Commercial Vehicles
  Biradar Akshaydatta Vinayakrao,  Prof. Swami M. C.,

The Connecting rod transmits the piston load to the crank causing the latter to turn, thus converting the reciprocating motion of the piston into a rotary motion of the crankshaft. Connecting rods are subjected to forces generated by mass and fuel combustion. Connecting rod is modeled using CATIA software and FE analysis is carried out using ANSYS Soft ware. Load distribution plays important role in fatigue life of the structure. This paper describes the design and finite element analysis of alternating material for connecting rod of heavy vehicle. The design and finite element analysis is performed by using computer aided design (CAD) software. The objective is to design and analysis the structural stress distribution of connecting rod at the real time condition during process. In the present work, an attempt has been made to investigate the suitable material which is lighter than steel and has fatigue strength, Yield strength and density properties. The optimization is carried out to reduce the stress concentration and weight of the connecting rod for Steel 4340, 42CrMo4, Al 7075-T7 which keeps the upspring mass low thereby increasing the stability of the vehicle. With using computer, aided design (CAD), CATIA V5 software the structural model of connecting rod is developed. The suitable material for the connecting rod is 42CrMo4, Al 7075-T7 and all the values obtained from the analysis are less than their allowable values. Hence, the connecting rod design is safe based on the strength and rigidity criteria. By identifying the true design features, the extended service life and long term, stability is assured.
