The main link inside the combustion engine is called connecting rod. It works as the connector between the crankshaft and piston. It works for transferring power from the piston to the crankshaft which can be sent to the transmission. One end of it follows the circular path and other end follows either the straight-line path or curve of large radius.
Here four-bar linkage of connecting rod is known as coupler and it has a special importance. This connecting 𝐓𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐮𝐦𝐑𝐨𝐝𝐬 can be made of different metals, such as steel, titanium etc. In production, the most significant rod found is cast rod. Cast rod is made by pouring molten steel into the mold. Then it is finished by machining it. This cast rod is used almost in any kind of engine.
Apart from this type of rod, there are different special types of rods. These special types are used for meeting high-performance requirements. Usually, these special types are made up of titanium, which are called titanium bars. 𝐓𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐮𝐦𝐑𝐨𝐝𝐬 makes engine run faster as it accelerates it. It is accelerated as weight is reduced in crankshaft when it is an 𝐓𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐮𝐦𝐑𝐨𝐝𝐬.
Titanium bars have the capacity to absorb sudden shocks of acceleration and deceleration of a performance engine. And its absorption power is much better than the steel rod.
All these connecting rods have different advantages and disadvantages. They are likely to create problem when there they are bad. As we know that these rods are fastened around the crankshaft on one end and piston on the other end. When crankshaft turns, rod turns simultaneously and it forces piston in upward and downward direction. When connecting rod is bad, then it will cause engine to get damaged. Thus, we need to be watchful on certain things which might cause this kind of problem.
