The combustion of fuel takes place inside the cylinder with the oxygen of the air, producing a very high-pressure combustion gas. The combustion gas does work on the piston and then passes through the connecting rod to the crankshaft. The reciprocating translational motion of the piston may damage the connecting rod. A simulation using ANSYS was performed on each of the three connecting rod materials. Results showed that the maximum deformation occurred in the connecting rod made of structural steel, aluminium alloy, and titanium alloy was 0.239 mm, 0.672 mm, and 0.496 mm, respectively.
