Aid of Digital Computer in the Analysis of Rigid Spring-Loaded Valve Mechanisms 620290

A digital computer is used to calculate the free motion of the valve train of a riged valve mechanism, after jump-off from the cam profile, in order to verify the correctness of the assumptions made with regard to the friction, in the dynamic analysis of the mechanism. Close correlation between the calculated and experimentally measured valve motions appears to justify the linearization of the friction present in the mechanism.
