MULTIBODY NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE WITH APPRAISAL OF THE WEAR DAMAGE

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

An internal combustion engine at four times (Otto cycle) and three cylinders is simulated by multibody software MSC Visual Nastran. The bearings are simulated by means of the library of constraint of the software, putting a particular attention to bench bearings and to the lubrication conditions. The loads on the bench bearings and in both the feet and head of the connecting rods, are evaluated by dynamical simulation, so that the inertia loads can be take in account, considering the condition of the maximum couple furnished by the engine. By making the necessary hypothesis, the evaluation of the wear damage is executed by Bayer theory on zero wear, obtaining that a good expectation of life can be obtained using adequate materials.
