ABSTRACT. This paper describes the results of thermal load applied on the pistons made by aluminum alloy 4032 and carbon graphite by using finite element Analysis (FEA) .The parameters used for the simulation are operating gas temperature and material properties of pistons. The specifications used for the study of these pistons belong to four stroke 100cc hero bike engine. This paper illustrates the procedure for analytical design of aluminum alloy, and carbon graphite pistons using specifications of four stroke 100cc hero bike engine. The results predict the Total Heat Flux, Temperature distribution and critical region on all of these pistons using FEA with Temperature of 200 degree Celsius on the top of piston. It is important to locate the critical area and advantages/disadvantages of both materials. The 3D modelling of piston is done in Solidworks (Feature module) and Simulation module used to mesh the pistons, thermal analysis with temperature applied on the top of piston head.
