ARTICLE INFO 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, thus converting the reciprocating motion of the piston into rotary motion of the crank. This project work is on designing and stress analysis of connecting rod. Currently existing connecting rod is manufactured by using Carbon steel. A parametric model of Connecting rod is modelled using CATIA V5 R19

Finite element method is used to determine parameters like various stresses & strain of a connecting rod and compare results with FFT analyzer. FFT analysis is done by hanging the connecting rod at small end and experimental results were compared with FEM. Linear static analysis is carried out & compared for both carbon steel and aluminium alloy to obtain the stress results by keeping the same boundary & loading conditions.
