Analytical Investigation of Crankshaft Dynamics as a Virtual Engine Module 1999-01-1750

A combined finite element method (FEM), multibody system simulation (MSS), and hydrodynamic (HD) bearing simulation technique can be applied to solve for engine crankshaft and cylinder block dynamics. The cylinder block and crankshaft are implemented in the MSS program as flexible FEM structures. The main bearing oil film reaction is described in the MSS program by a pre-calculated reaction force database. The results are displacements and deformations of the crank train parts and the main bearing reaction forces. Verification of the tool was carried out by comparison of main bearing cap accelerations to measured data.
