The forces acting on the foundation of a medium-speed diesel engine are identified. They vary in nature, and must be taken into account when designing foundations if trouble-free operation is to be achieved. The main causes of damage to both engine and foundations are the significant unbalanced forces in the diesels, the high mechanical stress in their frames, and increased dynamic strains and vibrations. All this must be considered when the "diesel-flange- foundation" system is analyzed to ensure its strength and develop sufficient rigidity. Appropriate modifications to the relevant regulations of the USSR Registry are proposed.
