Unformatted text preview: he bolts σt = Allowable tensile stress for the material of the bolts in MPa, and nb = Number of bolts. Generally two bolts are used. = π (d )2 σt × nb 4 cb Internal Combustion Engine Parts n 1155 Equating the inertia force to the force on the bolts, we have π ( d cb ) 2 σ t × n b FI = 4 From this expression, dcb is obtained. The nominal or major diameter (db) of the bolt is given by d db = cb 0.84 4. Thickness of the big end cap The thickness of the big end cap (tc) may be determined by treating the cap as a beam freely supported at the cap bolt centres and loaded by the inertia force at the top dead centre on the exhaust stroke (i.e. FI when θ = 0). This load is assumed to act in between the uniformly distributed load and the centrally concentrated load. Therefore, the maximum bending moment acting on the cap will be taken as F ×x MC = * I 6 where x = Distance between the bolt centres. = Dia. of crankpin or big end bearing (dc) + 2 × Thickness of bearing liner (3 mm) + Clearance (3 mm) Let bc = Width of the...
