Three Cylinder Reciprocating Engine

Application ID: 14009

In this example, a dynamic analysis of a three-cylinder reciprocating engine is performed to investigate stresses generated during operation, thereby permitting identification of the critical components. Demand for high power output relative to the weight of the engine requires careful design of its components.

This model of a reciprocating engine contains a combination of rigid and flexible parts.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
