Abstract: The primary link of an IC engine is a connecting rod. Its position is in-between the crankshaft and the piston whose key function is to convert the piston motion which is reciprocating in nature into rotary motion of the crank by transmitting the piston thrust to the crankshaft. This has entailed performing a detailed load analysis. In this paper, connecting rod’s finite element analysis was done using Finite Element techniques. So firstly by using the schematic diagram the solid model of the connecting rod was created using Solid works software. Then using the Ansys R17.1 software the meshing was done and then the Finite element analysis is done to find the Equivalent (Von-Mises) stresses and the Factor of Safety under the loading conditions. Structural Steel is the material which is used for connecting rod and the loading conditions are assumed to be static. In Equivalent (Von-Mises) stress test maximum stress is found to be 1.504×108 Pa and the minimum factor of safety is 1.20765 for the connecting rod.
