Crankshaft Strength Through Laboratory Testing 700526

This paper discusses laboratory procedures that have proven successful in analyzing crankshaft strength. Experimental techniques provide the most accurate means of determining the two variables required for this analysis, operating loads and fatigue strength. Comparison of these variables supplies the data to determine minimum factors of safety for each operating condition. Inadequate values indicate the need for crankshaft redesign.
