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 a connecting rod used in a diesel engine using theoretical calculations will be designed for two materials Carbon Steel and Aluminum alloy A360. The connecting rod will be modeled in 3D modeling software Creo 2.0. To validate the strength of the connecting rod, static analysis will be done. Modal analysis to determine number of modes and Fatigue analysis to determine life, damage and safety factor will also be done. Analysis will be done using two materials Carbon Steel and Aluminum alloy A360 to verify the best material for connecting rod using Ansys 14.5.
