The Study of this research is to carry out how the Hypereutectic alloys can be used as a piston material rather than commonly used alloys of Aluminium, Cast Iron, AlSiC, Al2O3, etc. We carried out Structural and Steady Thermal Analysis on ANSYS to determine the properties of AlSi17Cu5MgNi (Hypereutectic alloy) which exhibits high performance durability, toughness and can be used in high performing engines, where the piston undergoes continuous dynamic loads and high stresses. Though this piston has not comparison in strong, but hypereutectic pistons are made as an ideal choice of selection for the engine producing power between 600HP to 700HP based on the application of use. In further technological developments, the new material of is made by the composition of aluminium i.e. the formation of meatal matrix composite on the basis of aluminium and production is done with the help of power metallurgy. Some other constituents are added to reduce the weight such as carbon and magnesium. The current research on piston material like cast and forged aluminium alloys provides better potential for optimization and plays a vital role in upcoming years.
