In an engine, the piston is used for transfer force from expanding gas in the cylinder to the crankshaft via a piston rod. Piston has to endure the cyclic gas pressure and the inertial forces at work, and this working condition may cause the fatigue damage of the piston such as piston side wear, piston head cracks and so on. Usually tons are made of Aluminium for lightweight, thermal conductivity. But it has poor hot strength and high coefficient of expansion makes it less suitable for high temperature applications. In this project, Aluminium Silicon Carbide (AlSiC),an Aluminium matrix composite used as an alternative for Aluminium. A 3D model was made using ANSYS 15 and thermal analysis was done on ANSYS 15.Compared to aluminium,AlSiC has better abrasion resistance ,creep resistance, dimensional stability, exceptionally good stiffness-to-weight and strength-to-weight ratios and better high temperature performance. Fabrication of piston using AlSiC is also easier than using Aluminium.
