Eigenvalue Analysis of a Crankshaft
Application ID: 986
This model describes a modal analysis of a crankshaft. The pistons’ reciprocating movement is transferred to the crankshaft through connecting rods by means of crankshaft throws.
The forces, torques, and bending moments, which are highly variable both in time and space, subject the crankshaft to very high and complex loading. The crankshaft design must therefore incorporate careful and precise calculations of the vibrational characteristics.
This application was built using the following:COMSOL Multiphysics®
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product's capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
