Abstract: Master cylinder is a component of hydraulic braking system and it is just a simple piston inside a cylinder. Master cylinder is the key element of braking system which initiates and controls the braking action. A reservoir is attached to the master cylinder to store brake fluid. A master cylinder having a reservoir and a cylinder formed from a single piece of molded material. The objective of the present work is to minimize the weight to increase mileage in case of general road cars and to increase the speed of the vehicle in case of sports cars. Saving grams at different parts in a car helps us in saving some kilograms at the end of the design. The plastics have good elastic properties and are strong enough to use for master cylinder. The use of plastics in the manufacturing of master cylinder reduces the weight of the master cylinder. The master cylinder is modeled in PRO-E and the analysis is carried using ANSYS work bench. The automobile components like master cylinder can be easily modeled in PRO-E and can be easily analyzed using ANSYS.
