Authors(4) :-Mohd Yousuf Ahmed, Durga Prasad, Atram Suresh, Mohammad Altaf

The main objective of this project is to model, analyze, and optimization of Compressed Air Engine. To analyze the different types of load acting on the piston and to find the stress concentration on the piston and by applying the different types of materials on the piston. To reduce the piston weight and make the piston light weight thus by improving the piston efficiency and performance. The optimization of piston makes the piston light weight. Modelling, Analysis and optimization of piston which is stronger, lighter with minimum cost and with less time. Since the design and weight of the piston influence the engine performance. Analysis of the stress distribution in the various parts of the piston to know the stresses. The Piston of an engine is designed, analyzed and optimized by using graphics software. The CATIA, CAD software for performing the design phase and ANSYS for analysis and optimization phases are used. The performance of any automobile largely depends on its size and working in dynamic conditions. The design of the piston optimization can lead to a mass reduction on the base of stress analysis satisfying the requirements of automobile specifications with cost and size effectiveness. Piston is the part of engine which converts heat and pressure energy liberated by fuel combustion into mechanical works. Engine piston is the most complex among automotive. The stress distribution of piston by using FEM and investigate and analyze of the actual engine condition during combustion process. Intensity of structural stresses should be reduced to have safe allowable limits. This project introduces an analytical study of the structural effects on the engine piston.CAD software CATIA is used to model the piston and stress analysis is performed by using ANSYS for weight optimization. The review of existing literature design analysis and optimization of hybrid Piston for 2 stroke single cylinder. The materials, manufacturing process, design consideration and structural and thermal analysis etc. of the piston are reviewed here. The impact of crown thickness, thickness of barrel and piston top land height on stress distribution and total deformation is monitored during the study of actual 2 stroke engine piston. The entire optimization is carried out based on statistical analysis..The work describes the mesh optimization with using finite element analysis technique to predict the higher stress and critical region on the component.
