Let d0 and di be the outside and inside diameters of the piston pin. We know that the section modulus, π ( d 0 ) 4 − ( di ) 4 Z = 32 d0 We know that maximum bending moment, π ( d 0 ) 4 − ( di ) 4 σb M = Z × σb = 32 d0 where σb = Allowable bending stress for the material of the piston pin. It is usually taken as 84 MPa for case hardened carbon steel and 140 MPa for heat treated alloy steel. Assuming di = 0.6 d0, the induced bending stress in the piston pin may be checked.
