Unformatted text preview: oil level Crankshaft turns the piston action into rotation Piston Sump is filled with oil to reduce friction Oil is pumped up into cylinders to lubricate pistons The above picture shows crankshaft, pistons and cylinder of a 4-stroke petrol engine. 1128 n A Textbook of Machine Design Since these two stressess act at right angles to each other, therefore, the net stress in each direction is reduced. The piston side thrust tends to bend the cylinder wall, but the stress in the wall due to side thrust is very small and hence it may be neglected. Let D0 = Outside diameter of the cylinder in mm, D = Inside diameter of the cylinder in mm, p = Maximum pressure inside the engine cylinder in N/mm2, t = Thickness of the cylinder wall in mm, and 1/m = Poisson’s ratio. It is usually taken as 0.25. The apparent longitudinal stress is given by π × D2 × p Force D2 . p σl = =4 = 2 2 Area π [( D0 ) 2 − D 2 ] ( D0 ) − D 4 and the apparent circumferential stresss is given by σc = Force D × l × p D × p = = Area 2t × l 2t ....
