The objective of the present work is to focus on the structural analysis of ceramic coated piston, working under thermal and mechanical loads. Thermal analysis was carried out on uncoated and ceramic coated piston to verify the temperature changes at the ceramic coated regions using Hypermesh and Ansys. The study of thermal stresses generated due to temperature differences at different materials junctions used in coating was analyzed. The stresses due to the mechanical loads were studied to finally determine the structural behavior of the partially ceramic coated pistons.
