Comparative Analysis of Different Types of Pistons of Hatchback Cars

Authors(2) :-Mayur Mistry, Nayan Mistry

Piston is a reciprocating component of the IC engine, which produces reciprocating motion and converts the reciprocating motion into rotary motion with the help of crankshaft connected with it. There are several types of pistons available in the market. Among them, the three most basic types of pistons are flat type, crown type and disc type. They are designed and used according to their advantages, limitations and applications. The hatchback cars available in the market contains flat type piston. They are used because of their ease of manufacturing and low cost of production. Our aim of the project is to check the compatibility of crown and disc type of piston in hatchback and sedan cars instead of flat type piston by carrying on pressure analysis, thermal analysis and thermo-mechanical analysis using ANYSYS software and compare the results with that of the flat type piston. The modelling of the pistons is carry out in Creo 2.0 parametric software.
