Jatkar, Mr. Sunil S. DhanweAbstract -In this study a dynamic analysis ofsingle cylinder petrol engine was conducted. Finiteelement analysis was performed to obtain thevariation of the stress magnitude at criticallocations of connecting rod and crankshaft. Thedynamic analysis resulted in the development of theload on piston. This load is calculated fromMATLAB. This load was then applied to the FEmodel and boundary conditions were appliedaccording to the engine assembly. It is observedthat maximum stress is developed at crank pin ofcrank shaft. The maximum stresses are developedat the fillet section of the big and the small end ofconnecting rod. Hence, the project deals with thestress analysis of connecting rod and crankshaft byFinite Element Method using ANSYSWORKBENCH 11.0 Software. Also Resultsobtained from the analysis were then comparedwith analytical method.Index Terms—Crankshaft, connecting rod andAnsys workbench 11.0I. INTRODUCTIONThe Internal combustion petrol engine arethose that burn their fuel which is mixture of air andpetrol from carburetor inside the cylinder. Theseengine convert the chemical energy stored in theirfuel into heat energy during the power stroke ofpiston. The heat energy produced from burning offuel is used for motion of piston. During Operationof four stroke of piston various parts engine is actedby different stress. Also some parts are undergoneDeformation. All these stresses and deformationmust be studied so that Petrol engine can bedesigned by Optimum. The magnitudes, variationsand exposure times for the stresses and temperaturesexperienced are the major factors controlling thelives engine components in service. The role ofstress analysis is to calculate these quantities so thatcomponent service lives can be predicted.Currently the dynamic analysis of theinternal combustion engine for a given configurationand specifications is most widely conducted using aphysical test rig. Though the analysis of in-processstress is very much difficult owing tothe complications of the system and the temperatureof the piston and cylinder assembly..All theseprocess are manually operated therefore itis timeconsuming.Dynamic analysis of the IC engine can also beperformed using dynamic simulation software likeMSC ADAMS, MATLAB Sim-Mechanics, ANSYSand the results of the dynamic analysis can then beimported into a FEA software which can solve forstructural solutions like stress, deformation.II. LITERATURE REVIEWWork done by various researchers in theareas of defined problem is focused as belowH. D. Desai [1] explained that thereciprocating engine mechanism is often analyzed,since it serves all the demands required for theconvenient utilization of natural sources of energy,such as steam, gaseous and liquid fuels, forgeneration of power. Further, it is widely employedas suitable mechanism for pumps and compressors.In this paper the complete kinematic and combinedstatic and inertia force analysis of a horizontal,single – cylinder, four stroke internal combustionengine is discussed. The analytical approach is usedas it is more accurate and is less time consuming if itis programmed for the computer solution. The datafor the analysis of the engine has been taken fromthe available literature. The present investigationfurnishes the complete kinematic history of thedriven links and the bearing loads for the completeworking cycle of the engine mechanism. Thecomplete force analysis of the engine is simplifiedby a summation of the static forces and inertia forcesignoring the friction forces which makes the analysislinear. The computer program is prepared in fortranlanguage for both kinematic and dynamic analysis ofthe engine at the crank interval of 15° Vivek. C.Pathade [2] recognized that, the automobileengine connecting rod is a high volume productioncritical component. Every vehicle that uses aninternal combustion engine requires at least oneconnecting rod .From the viewpoint of functionality,connecting rods must have the highest possiblerigidity at the lowest weight. The major stressinduced in the connecting rod is a combination ofaxial and bending stresses in operation. The axialstresses are produced due to cylinder gas pressure(compressive only) and the inertia force arising inaccount of reciprocating action (both tensile as wellas compressive), where as bending stresses arecaused due to the centrifugal effects. The result ofwhich is, the maximum stresses are developed at thefillet section of the big and the small end. Hence, thepaper deals with the stress analysis of connecting rodby Finite Element Method using Pro/E Wildfire 4.0and ANSYS WORKBENCH 11.0 Software.Momin Muhammad Zia Muhammad [3]presented that the crankshaft is an importantcomponent of an engine. This paper presents resultsof strength analysis done on crankshaft of a singlecylinder two stroke petrol engine, using PRO/E and

Dhanwe / International Journal of Engineering Research andApplications (IJERA) ISSN: 2248-9622 www.ijera.comVol. 3, Issue 3, May-Jun 2013, pp.1177-11831178 | P a g eANSYS software. The three dimensional model ofcrankshaft was developed in PRO/E and imported toANSYS for strength analysis. This work includes, inanalysis, torsion stress which is generally ignored. Acalculation method is used to validate the model.The paper also proposes a design modification in thecrankshaft to reduce its mass. The analysis ofmodified design is also done.Anil Kumar [4] explained that Aim ofthis work is to optimize weight and reduce inertiaforces on the existing connecting rod, which isobtained by changing such design variables in theexisting connecting rod design. The model wasdeveloped in Pro/E wildfire 5.0 and then imported asparasolid (xt) form in ANSYS workbench. In thiswork finite element analysis of the single cylinderfour stroke petrol engine connecting rod isconsidered as case study. The Von Mises stress,strain and total deformation determined for the sameloading conditions and compared with the existingresults. Based on the observation of static FEA andthe load analysis result, the load for the optimizationstudy was selected same as on existing connectingrod. The current work consists of static structuralanalysis. The static analysis was carried out underaxial and buckling load. The model is also selectedfor fatigue analysis to determine the fatigue strength.Gunter Knoll [5] studied that Asoftware package was developed to simulate thedynamics of a flexible crankshaft and a flexibleengine block, coupled by nonlinear, distributed,elastohydrodynamic fluid film bearing reactionforces. The Kernel of the developed code is a stepsize controlled integration of Newtons equations ofmotion in the time domain. Large rigid bodymotions and small elastic deformations are separatedusing special matrix operations. No additional set ofequations for the rigid body motion is required.Structural properties of the elastic bodies arerepresented by stiffness and mass matrices obtainedfrom commercial finite element programs. Acombined static (Guyan) and modal reductionscheme is used to limit the number of degrees offreedom, at which gyroscopic, centrifugal andcoriolis effects are considered by suited reducedvectors and matrices. An arbitrary number of fluidfilm bearings can be defined to couple the finiteelement structures. Various (elasto-) hydrodynamiccalculation models can be selected depending on theneeds of accuracy and computational speed. In theelastohydrodynamic solution a sub structuringmethod is employed and Reynolds equation,including mass conserving cavitation, is solved onthe bearing surface of the substructure using finiteelement methods. The computed results, nodaldisplacements, velocities, accelerations and forces,lubricant pressure and density distributions, journalorbits etc., indicate the system behavior and supportthe system optimization. In an exemple studycomputed results are compared to measurements.Test rig runs were done with a four cylinder fourstroke 1.8 gasoline engine.Amit Solanki [6] explained that theperformance of any automobile largely depends onits size and working in dynamic conditions. Thedesign of the crankshaft considers the dynamicloading and the optimization can lead to a shaftdiameter satisfying the requirements of automobilespecifications with cost and size effectiveness. Thereview of existing literature on crankshaft designand optimization is presented. The materials,manufacturing process, failure analysis, designconsideration etc. of the crankshaft are reviewedhere.Farzin H. Montazersadghand Ali Fatemi [7]presented that a dynamic simulation was conductedon a crankshaft from a single cylinder four strokeengine. Finite element analysis was performed toobtain the variation of stress magnitude at criticallocations. The pressure-volume diagram was used tocalculate the load boundary condition in dynamicsimulation model, and other simulation inputs weretaken from the engine specification chart. Thedynamic analysis was done analytically and wasverified by simulation in ADAMS which resulted inthe load spectrum applied to crank pin bearing. Thisload was applied to the FE model in ABAQUS, andboundary conditions were applied according to theengine mounting conditions. The analysis was donefor different engine speeds and as a result criticalengine speed and critical region on the crankshaftwere obtained. Stress variation over the engine cycleand the effect of torsional load in the analysis wereinvestigated. Results from FE analysis were verifiedby strain gages attached to several locations on thecrankshaft. Results achieved from aforementionedanalysis can be used in fatigue life calculation andoptimization of this component.III. Analytical Vector ApproachThe main objective of the analyticalanalysis is to determine the magnitude and directionof the loads that act on the bearing betweenconnecting rod and crankshaft, which was then usedin the FEA over an entire cycle. An analyticalapproach was used on the basis of a single degree offreedom slider crank mechanism. MATLABprogramming was used to solve the resultingequations.The analytical approach is discussed indetail in this section. The slider-crank mechanismwith a single degree of freedom considered forsolving the equations of motion is as shown in figure3.1 below. The following procedure was performedto obtain different dynamic properties of movingcomponents.

Theequations where used in MATLAB and provided thevalues of angular velocity and angular accelerationof the connecting rod, linear acceleration of center ofgravity of the connecting rod, and forces at theconnecting rod-piston bearing and connecting rod-crankshaft bearing. The advantage of usingMATLAB programming is that any changes in theinput could be made very easily and solution quicklyobtained, whereas using commercial programs suchas Cosmos Motion requires much more time editingthe input data. This advantage comes intoconsideration when optimization is to be performedon a component, since during optimization massand/or some dimensions change and making thesechanges in the commercial software is timeconsuming. The complete MATLAB program usedin this analysis is also givenThe engine configuration from which thecrankshaft was taken is shown in Table I below..The four link mechanism was then solved byMATLAB programming to obtain the volume of thecylinder as a function of the crank angle.IV. Analytical analysis of Slider crankmechanismThe analysis was based on simulation of thesimple slider-crank mechanism which is shown 3.1in figure above. As can be seen in the figure 3.1, linkAB is the crankshaftradius, link BC is the connecting rodlength, and the slider is the piston assembly.

CONCLUSIONI. Static analysis of a connecting rod thatis typically performed can yieldunrealistic stresses, where dynamic analysisprovides more accurate results better suitedfor fatigue design and optimization analysisof this high volume production component.II. The stresses induced in the small end of theconnecting rod are greater than the stressesinduced at the big end. Therefore, thechances of failure of the connecting rodmay be at fillet section of both ends.III. The bending stress produced as a result ofdynamic loading is significant and bendingstiffness in the shank should be consideredas an important design factor.IV. Kinematic analysis of the engine has beencarried out by analytical method UsingMATLAB method as this method is moreaccurate than graphical method and cangive results for all the phases of themechanism.REFERENCES[1] H.
