Abstract: In IC engine, Piston is one of the most important and complex part. With increasing power and performance of engine, higher thermal load and the thermal stresses are acting on piston, thereby, decreasing its life time. It is important to maintain Piston in good condition in order to maintain the proper functioning of the engine. Piston mainly fails due to thermal Conditions. In this paper 3D model of piston is developed, structural and thermal analysis is done by ANSYS using 5 different materials to find out the temperature and thermal stress distribution, theoretically finding the total heat flux and compare with the practical values of different Piston Materials used.
