Abstract

The automobile engine connecting rod is a high volume production, critical component. The main objective of this study was to optimize an alloy steel connecting rod for its weight. The optimized alloy steel connecting rod is intended to be more attractive option for auto manufacturers. Opportunities in reduction of eight are explored here. The idea behind optimizing is to retain just as much strength as is needed. Commercial software such as ANSYS was used to obtain the variation of quantities such as dimensional properties and loads. Objective of the optimization task was to minimize the mass of the connecting rod under the effect of load range. The stress analysis of the connecting is done using the prepared Finite Element Model. The connecting rod with the boundary conditions of compressive loading is optimized with the given design variables satisfying the maximum value of compressive stress. The optimized connecting rod is lighter than the original one by the amount of 12.33 %. Therefore there is weight reduction and cost reduction of the connecting rod. Also because of the reduced weight there is reduction in the inertia forces and so the operating cost of the engine will also be reduced.
