Abstract:

A piston is a reciprocating part of an engine which is bound by a cylinder and plays the role of changing the heat and pressure energy produced by rapid combustion of fuel in the combustion cycle into mechanical work. Since the piston is acted upon by so much forces, it has to be designed in such a way that it can withstand all of them without any shear failure. Over the past decades, Aluminium has managed to prevail as the best material to be used as piston, but after the discovery of aluminium alloys, the latter has taken the privilege. Aluminium alloys are much light and possess great moduli and thermal properties which puts them in the front seat. In this paper we have done a comparative study of structural and thermal behavior of piston when designed using commonly used Aluminium and Al 6082-T6 alloy. The results were quite appealing and satisfying to choose Al 6082-T6 to serve as a better piston material over the conventional aluminium and other alloys. For this, piston was modeled in Solidworks 14 and analysed in Ansys 15.
