A mobile ad hoc network is a dynamic wireless network, which does not have fixed infrastructure. This paper presents a new multicast algorithm to increase the lifetime of node and network in the mobile ad hoc network. Here, it considers two metrics, namely residual-battery-capacity of the node and relay-capacity of the node to do multicasting from the source to a group of destination nodes. The proposed model is simulated using network simulator-2.33 and is tested under various conditions. The proposed model is compared with the existing algorithms such as multicast-incremental-power, lifetime-aware-multicast-tree, multicast-ad-hoc-on-demand-distance-vector protocol and multiple-path-multicast-ad-hoc on-demand vector. The proposed model shows the best results in terms of node lifetime, network lifetime and throughput.
