In the modern market the demand of the light weight vehicle is more so as to have good aesthetic view with speed and power. In the same process it is challenge to the modern design is to lower the weight of the vehicle. In the vehicle there are many important components such as engine, piston, crankshaft, connecting rod, valves etc. Connecting Rod is such a product which is a critical part of an Internal Combustion Engine. It is an intermediate link or a part or a member between the Crankshaft and the Piston. Piston needs to convert reciprocating motion into rotary motion. The piston pin exerts a push force whereas crank pin receives a pull force. Connecting rod is mainly responsible for transferring the power from the piston to Crankshaft. Connecting rod is manufactured in bulk quantity. Different materials are used to manufacture the Connecting rod. Steel, Alloy Steel and aluminum is the commonly used material for Connecting rod. This paper reviews the design methods used for connecting rod by various researchers, which can be seen from the following sections of the paper. This is an assessment of the current methodology for designing of a complex component such as connecting rod. Finally results are discussed.
