Unformatted text preview: by considering the crankpin in bearing and then checked for bending stress. Let dc = Diameter of the crankpin in mm, lc = Length of the crankpin in mm, and pb = Safe bearing pressure on the pin in N/mm2 . It may be between 9.8 to 12.6 N/mm2. We know that FP = dc . lc . pb From this expression, the values of dc and lc may be obtained. The length of crankpin is usually from 0.6 to 1.5 times the diameter of pin. The crankpin is now checked for bending stress. If it is assumed that the crankpin acts as a cantilever and the load on the crankpin is uniformly distributed, then maximum bending moment will F × lc be P . But in actual practice, the bearing 2 pressure on the crankpin is not uniformly distributed and may, therefore, give a greater value F × lc of bending moment ranging between P and 2 FP × lc . So, a mean value of bending moment, i.e. 3 F × l may be assumed. 4P c H1 = Close-up view of an automobile piston 1172 n A Textbook of Machine Design ∴ Maximum bending moment at the crankpin, 3 F×l M= ...
