Pistons used in the cylinders of modern automobiles are made of Aluminium alloys due to their light weight and reasonable mechanical strength. But the effective heat energy generated in cylinder gets conducted and results in lower network content. Hence, in the current investigation, ceramic coatings of various thicknesses are imparted on the crown of the piston and the property evaluation is carried out. It is evident from the experimental results that the temperature gradient and distribution are different in coated and uncoated pistons and thermal efficiency has increased with coating thickness. The scope of the research further includes finite element analysis of the piston to evaluate and compare the deformation and stress patterns of uncoated and coated scenarios.
