Abstract

The connecting rod is bridge between the crankshaft and piston in reciprocating engine, which is used to convert linear motion into rotary motion and vice-versa. The automobile engine connecting rod is a high volume production, critical component, hence most of the work and study is carried out to redesign a connecting rod with aim to achieve for its light weight and to bear all the various forces and loads during operation and finally enhancing manufacturing feasibility and cost reduction too. In high speed engines I-section or H-section or Tabular section is used which reduces the weight and helps to achieve lightness. The Lightness of the rod help in keeping the inertia forces as small as possible, hence Aluminum is used. And reinforcement is done in order to get improved mechanical and tribological properties like strength, stiffness, abrasion, impact resistance and wear resistance using particulates of oxides or carbides or borides such as Al2O3, TiB2, TiO2,SiC,TiC, B4C,etc are done in combination i.e, to achieve hybrid composite or any single entity as required. The stir casting process is commonly used for Aluminum Metal Matrix Composites (AMMCs) with Particulate reinforcement which has low production cost, easier and helps best in achieving uniform distribution of Particulates in the Matrix. This paper guides towards proper selection of reinforcement to be added into AMMC material, with suitable, economical and feasible manufacturing process in designing and production of connecting rods.
