This study is the thermo mechanical behavior model of connecting rod for an engine type F4L912. It aims to determine the optimum operating conditions under variable mechanical and thermal loads. The two cases are considered tensile loading and compression of the connecting rod. The results obtained stress state, deformation and thermal fields, allow the establishment of a predictive model of areas heavily used and hence improve the design parameters of connecting rods including dimensioning phase. The nume-rical method used is the finite element as it is implemented in ANSYS software. The nodal solution provides the ability to accurate and locates the coordinates of the elements that are causing some damages to the con-necting rod.
