Abstract— In this paper we have performed design optimization of piston by using global sensitivity study along with finite element analysis through PRO-E. First a piston has been modeled and then finite element analysis has been performed to know about the structural and thermal loading effects. Then design optimization is performed to get the optimum mass by determining the optimum value of crown thickness and skirt length of the piston by limiting various conditions like maximum temperature, maximum principle stress, von misses stress and maximum strain energy.

Index Terms— Piston, Global sensitivity analysis
