FEA of Al-SiC Composite in Engine Valve Guides Mech Project Report

This FEA of Al-SiC Composite in Engine Valve Guides Mech Project Report is focused on the concept to maximize engine dependability with the help of Al-SiCp composites for the guides of engine valve which can be used as other material. Aluminum matrix composites consist of many applications like industries of aircraft, automotive, and aerospace which is sure to be developed in the future. There are few element analysis made on the Al-SiCp engine with the help of Ansys software. The temperature, principal stress and strain were acquired on the whole engine surface.

With respect to today’s high competition and development, the manufacturers of automobile should competitively obtain the increased powerful needs and performance, less pollution diffusion, less fuel usage, and reduced vibration and noise.

The industry has identified the material requirement to satisfy demands of the new comers. Metal matrix composites provides the best properties in many components of automotive like engine valves, piston, cylinder liner, brake discs, clutch discs, brake drums, connecting rods etc.

 Al-SiCp engine is manufactured by the processes of powder and casting metallurgy. Many features of the engine like strength, hardness, and wear resistance of radial crushing were measured and compared. Many conditions like pressure, temperature, and displacement were used on the engine surface.


The major concept focused in the engine valve guide is 2.97 (tensile) and 5.01 MPa (compressive) less than Al-SiCp composites strength. The engine guides includes strength of radial crushing, maximum Rockwell hardness, and wear resistance than iron engine applied in engines. Hence it is concluded that Al-SiCp composites possess high potential for the engine guides like the other material.
