A novel piston pin design is proposed for diesel engines having higher load capacity than current pin designs. This shaped piston pin incorporates a stress-reducing profile with lubricant film thickness enhancing features on the surface. Three dimensional FEA models were built and are used to model the dynamic contact between the piston and connecting rod interfaces with a standard piston pin and the new piston pin design.
