To obtaina weight optimised connecting rod of an industrial compressor which can withstand the load acting on it due to compressed gases. The initial design of connecting rod is calculated using standard empirical formulas and designed in Ansys design modular. The connecting rod is used to translate the rotating motion of electric motor to the oscillatory motion of the piston. The rod is subjected to the high cyclic loads of compression and tension. The optimised connecting rod with reduced weight results in the reduced inertial forces in the system. Once the designing of the connecting rod is done FE analysis is done depending on the loading condition of the connecting rod. Loading of connecting rod is calculated based upon the gas pressure and compressor specification. The overall results of the analysis are also validated by the analytical method. Thus the process results in the optimised and effective connecting rod.
