Design and Analysis of Crankshaft of Four Cylinder Diesel Engine for Heavy Vehicle

Authors(2) :-Randhavan Bhagwat M, Galhe D S

Crankshaft is an important part of in an engine assembly. Crankshaft consists of two web sections and one crankpin. Crankshaft converts the reciprocating motion of the piston to a rotary motion with a four bar link mechanism. This paper is related to design and finite element analysis of crankshaft of 4 cylinder diesel engine of heavy vehicle like truck. Engine has capacity of 3785.1cc. The finite element analysis in ANSYS software by using five materials based on their composition viz. FG260, FG300, EN8, EN24 and Aluminum Alloy material. The parameter like von misses stress, deformation; maximum principal stress were obtained from analysis software. The results of Finite element indicate that the Aluminum alloy material can be best suitable material among all.
