In present scenario internal combustion engines play crucial role in energy saving, and in this context, importance of connecting rod cannot be overlooked. Considering these facts, present research is devoted to the investigations of connecting rods using different materials. For this purpose connecting rod of an automobile was chosen and static and modal analysis on the rod was carried out. The selected materials were stainless steel, cast iron, Aluminum Alloy 7075, High Strength Carbon Fiber, Al fly ash silicon composite, and AISI 4340 Steel alloy material. Modal analysis governs the suitability of all the materials for the applications. For the purpose of model development CATIA software was used, and analysis was done on ANSYS 14.0 software.
