STRESS DISTRIBUTION IN SOME DIESEL ENGINE CRANK SHAFTS

Models of single throws of overlapped crankshafts have been loaded by free and restrained torsion, radial and tangential forces and bending moments, and by axial tension. Stress distributions in the fillets have been obtained by frozen stress photoelasticity. Some peak stresses have been measured with strain gauges. Results, expressed as multiples of convenient nominal stresses, are compared with predictions from published work. The maximum stresses due to any combination of firing force and free torsion were computed and it is shown how the effects of other loading modes may be included.
