Crankshaft is an extensive segment with a perplexing (complex) geometry in the engine, which changes over the reciprocating displacement of the piston into a rotating movement with a four-link mechanism. Since the crankshaft encounters countless cycles amid its service life, fatigue performance and toughness of this part must be considered in the design procedure. Design improvements have dependably been an imperative issue in the crankshaft creation industry, so as to fabricate a more affordable component with the base weight conceivable and appropriate fatigue strength and other useful prerequisites. These enhancements result in lighter and smaller engine with better fuel efficiency and higher power output.

The static analysis is done utilizing FEA Software ANSYS which brought about the heap range connected to crank pin bearing. This load is applying to the FE model in ANSYS, and boundary conditions are applying by the engine mounting conditions. Finite  Element  Analysis (FEA)  is  to  be  performing  to  obtain  the  variation  of  stress magnitude at critical locations. The static, random vibration analysis is done and is verifying  by  simulations  in  finite  element  analysis  software ANSYS.

In this paper a static simulation is led on a crankshaft from a single cylinder 4-stroke diesel engine. A three-dimensional model of diesel engine crankshaft is made utilizing CREO Parametric software. Static analysis to determine the deformation, stress and strain at al-cu reinforced material. Present steel material used for crank shaft replace with  the al-cu reinforced material. 

Multi-layer analysis to determine the deformation, stress and strain to comparing the existing material, Random vibration analysis to determine the directional deformation.
