Two dimensional photoelastic technique & Finite element analysis is used to analyse stresses in a piston of an Internal combustion engine. The stresses due to combustion gas load only are considered. The results from both the methods are compared and validated. Based on the results, modifications in the piston profile can be suggested ,so as to reduce the weight and hence to increase the power output of engine.
