Section modulus for the crankpin,
( d )3
∴ Bending stress induced,
σb = M / Z
This induced bending stress should be within the permissible limits.
(b) Design of bearings. The bending moment at the centre of the bearing 1 is given by
M = FP (0.75 lc + t + 0.5 l1)
where ...(i) lc = Length of the crankpin,
t = Thickness of the crank web = 0.45 dc to 0.75 dc, and
l1 = Length of the bearing = 1.5 dc to 2 dc. We also know that π
M = 32 (d1 ) σb
From equations (i) and (ii), the diameter of the bearing 1 may be determined. ...(ii) Note : The bearing 2 is also made of the same diameter. The length of the bearings are found on the basis of
allowable bearing pressures and the maximum reactions at the bearings. (c) Design of crank web. When the crank is at dead centre, the crank web is subjected to a
bending moment and to a direct compressive stress.
We know that bending moment on the crank web,
M = FP (0.75 lc + 0.5 t)
× w . t2
section modulus, Z =
∴ Bending stress,
We also know that direct compressive stress,
σd = w...
