Three-Cylinder Reciprocating Engine

Model ID: 14009


In this example, a dynamic analysis of a three-cylinder reciprocating engine is performed to investigate stresses generated during operation, thereby permitting identification of the critical components. Demand for high power output relative to the weight of the engine requires careful design of its components.

This model of a reciprocating engine contains a combination of rigid and flexible parts.
