Abstract :

In the present paper a case study of “Fatigue Analysis in Connecting Rod Using ANSYS” is carried out. In this paper, finite element analysis of single cylinder four stroke petrol engine using ANSYS. The work has to find out the stresses at various points on the connecting rod and the portion, which is more susceptible to failure and optimization of connecting rod. To evaluate the magnitude and location stresses in the existing connecting rod. This is of great interest to the auto manufactures that which is the portion of the connecting rod which mainly fails so that they can use various methods of hardening the specific area by using special hardening treatments. In response to an increasing demand for fuel-economy, more weight reduction techniques have been proposed to create an optimum connecting rod design. The research aims to maximize weight savings in a connecting rod, without sacrificing the structural performances such as bending strength, buckling strength, and torsional stiffness. The focus of fatigue in ANSYS is to provide useful information to the design engineer when fatigue failure may be a concern. Fatigue results can have a convergence attached. A stress-life approach has been adopted for conducting a fatigue analysis. Several options such as accounting for mean stress and loading conditions are available.
