In this paper discussed about various design of connecting rod with different approach. The design and optimization of connecting rod reduce the weight and it will leads to better fatigue performance for the heavy duty applications. Different design approach leads to find out effective design of particular area. Topology optimization approaches have an ability to reduce the weight of connecting rod. Use of different material for connecting rod shows the different results through finite element analysis. Based on the finite element analysis we can find suitable material and it will increase the life of connecting rod. Generally for analyzing purpose ANSYS/NASTRAN software can be used. According to various research papers studied it will be clearly indicate that the new design much lighter and has more strength than initial design of connecting rod.
