Calculation of High -Speed Valve Motion with a Flexible Overhead Linkage 530261
THE author present a method for calculating high-speed motion of a cam-actuated engine valve, operated with a flexible linkage.
Correlation between calculated and experimental valve motion is shown to be reasonably good. The designer is enabled to understand the valve-motion phenomenon, and to predict it quantitatively, thereby eliminating many of the usual expensive trial processes.
