Homework #3 Name_________________________ Design the connecting rod bearing for the Grand Prix engine discussed in class. The specs are: Engine capacity = 3500 cc Max engine speed = 15,000 rpm Piston diameter = 86mm Engine stroke = 50.2 mm Piston weight = 24.3 oz = 0.69 Kg Maximum cylinder pressure = 1000 psi = 7x10 6 Pa Maximum inertia force = 2300 lbs Operating temperature = 93 º C Lubricant = SAE 30 Assume that the maximum pressure load is at top dead center and the maximum centrifugal force

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
