Abstract

This paper aims to utilize Finite Element Analysis, to gain insights on load distribution across the connecting rod geometry, as well as possible deformation due to structural stresses. This method significantly shortens the design cycle by reducing the number of physical tests required. Utilizing this capability, the paper compares different materials to obtain light weight connecting rod design, without affecting the structural strength.
