FINITE ELEMENT STRESS ANALYSIS IN THE MEDIUM SPEED DIESEL ENGINE

Analytical techniques are demonstrated with respect to the mosaic non-linear thermal and stress analysis package developed at the University of Leeds and marketed by Compeda. This package was specifically designed for the analysis of thermally loaded components under realistic conditions of load. The case for the use of sophisticated computer techniques has been adequately made and reiterated over the years in the context of diesel engine component stress analysis. The authors feel justified therefore in stating axiomatically that the use of such techniques, and in particular the use of the finite element method of stress analysis, should be well understood by the modern engine designer if increased power trends and in-service reliability are to follow a parallel course.
