Modeling and Analysis of Two Wheeler Connecting Rod

By K. Sudershn Kumar

Abstract

ABSTRACT: 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. Existing connecting rod is manufactured by using Carbon steel. This paper describes modeling and analysis of connecting rod. In this project connecting rod is replaced by Aluminum reinforced with Boron carbide for Suzuki GS150R motorbike. A 2D drawing is drafted from the calculations. A parametric model of connecting rod is modelled using PRO-E 4.0 software. Analysis is carried out by using ANSYS software. Finite element analysis of connecting rod is done by considering two materials,viz.. Aluminum Reinforced with Boron Carbide and Aluminum 360. The best combination of parameters like Von misses stress and strain, Deformation, Factor of safety and weight reduction for two wheeler piston were done in ANSYS software. Compared to carbon steel, aluminum boron carbide and aluminum 360, Aluminum boron carbide is found to have working factor of safety is nearer to theoretical factor of safety, 33.17 % to reduce the weight, to increase the stiffness by 48.55 % and to reduce the stress by10.35 % and most stiffer
