Open-Ended Design Project EML 4551 - Capstone Design (Summer 1996) Goal/Purpose: Apply the fundamentals developed in the mechanical engineering curriculum to an individual design project. The fundamentals and software for computer-aided-design and analysis are implemented into the design project. Objectives: Design a connecting rod for an internal combustion engine and all associated components, if necessary (see the figure below). The crank should be designed with the following criteria in mind: uniform stress throughout, minimum weight, cost effectiveness, and manufacturability.

Constraints: The following constraints are imposed upon the design: Material can be Titanium alloy (Ti 6-4) - γ = 0.162 lb/in 3 , E = 16 Mpsi, ν = 0.33 Aluminum alloy - γ = 0.100 lb/in 3 , E = 10 Mpsi, ν = 0.30 Carbon Steel - γ = 0.284 lb/in 3 , E = 30 Mpsi, ν = 0.30 Nominal length from wrist-pin center to crank-pin center = 10". Crank-pin bore = 2.25”
