In the modern engines with higher compression ratios, severe pressures and
non-uniform heating up is occurred for the engine parts. The piston as the
most critical part among all automotive components has been the subject of
numerous studies on calculation of temperature distribution, but thermal
stress analyses are limited. In this study, the piston of gasoline engine XU7
which is widespread in Iran transport section is considered for thermomechanical
