THERMAL STRESS ANALYSIS OF INTEGRATED COMBUSTION ENGINE PISTON USING CAE TOOLS (ALUMINUM SILICON ALLOY, ALUMINUM SILICON ALLOY STEEL)
The main indention of this research work is to investigate and analyze the stress distribution of piston at actual engine Condition. In this paper thermal stress analysis is done by two different materials Aluminum Silicon alloy and Aluminum Silicon alloy steel. The parameter used for the analysis is operating temperature and material properties of piston. In I.C(internal combustion) Engine piston is most complex and significant part therefore for smooth running of vehicle piston should be in proper working condition. Piston fails mainly Due to mechanical stresses and thermal stresses. Analysis of piston is done with boundary conditions and uneven temperature distribution from piston head to skirt. The analysis predicts that due to temperature whether the top surface of the piston may be damaged during the operating conditions, because damaged parts are so expensive to replace and generally are not easily available. The CAD model is created Using CATIA V5 R20 software. CAD model is then imported into ANSYS12 software for geometry and meshing purpose. The FEA Performed by also using ANSYS14.
