Three Cylinder Reciprocating Engine
Application 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.
This model is included as an example in the following products:Multibody Dynamics Module
however additional products may be needed to reproduce it. This example may be created and run using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products.
