Unformatted text preview: 600 mm gas engine. The weight of the flywheel is 80 kN and
the explosion pressure is 2.5 N/mm2. The gas pressure at maximum torque is 0.9 N/mm2 when the
crank angle. is 30º. The connecting rod is 4.5 times the crank radius.
Any other data required for the design may be assumed.
9. Design a rocker arm of I-section made of cast steel for operating an exhaust valve of a gas engine. The
effective length of the rocker arm is 250 mm and the angle between the arm is 135°. The exhaust valve
is 80 mm in diameter and the gas pressure when the valve begins to open is 0.4 N/mm2. The greatest
suction pressure is 0.03 N/mm2 below atmospheric. The initial load may be assumed as 0.05 N/mm2
of valve area and the valve inertia and friction losses as 120 N. The ultimate strength of cast steel is
750 MPa. The allowable bearing pressure is 8 N/mm2 and the permissible stress in the material is 72
10. Design the various components of a valve gear mechanism for a horizontal diesel engine having the
following specifications: I...
