Since the maximum load to be carried by the crankpin and piston pin bearings is the maximum
force in the connecting rod (FC), therefore the dimensions for these two pins are determined for the
maximum force in the connecting rod (FC) which is taken equal to the maximum force on the piston
due to gas pressure (FL) neglecting the inertia forces.
We know that maximum gas force,
D = Cylinder bore or piston diameter in mm, and
p = Maximum gas pressure in N/mm2
Now the dimensions of the crankpin and piston pin are determined as discussed below :
dc = Diameter of the crank pin in mm,
lc = Length of the crank pin in mm,
pbc = Allowable bearing pressure in N/mm2, and
dp, lp and pbp = Corresponding values for the piston pin,
We know that load on the crank pin
= Projected area × Bearing pressure
= dc . lc . pbc
Similarly, load on the piston pin
= dp . lp . pbp
...(iii) FL = 1154 n A Textbook of Machine Design Equating equation (i) and (ii), we have
FL = dc · lc · pbc
Taking lc = 1.25 dc to 1.5 dc, the value of dc and lc are determined from the above expres...
