EXPERIENCES WITH CHROMIUM PLATING ON MEDIUM SIZED DIESEL ENGINE CRANKSHAFTS

The paper attempts to clarify the important features of chromium plate and makes comparison with other methods of surface treatment. Details of crankshaft preparation and machining operations are discussed together with a review of the desired standard of surface finish. The success of the technique is demonstrated by reference to the results of fatigue tests on full sized specimens and extensive experience with crankshafts in commercial service.
