STRESSES IN A MEDIUM SPEED DIESEL ENGINE FRAME

The bedplate, column, cylinder casings, bearing caps and crankshaft of a model of one bay of a vee type medium speed diesel engine have been made in epoxy resin and joined by compression springs simulating the appropriate bolt forces and stiffnesses. The model has been loaded by freely hanging weights simulating firing and reciprocating inertia forces and subjected to frozen stress loading. Stresses obtained from numerous slices cut from these components are analysed and related to the designer's qualitative understanding of the load paths.(a) /TRRL/
