An engine is a device, which transforms one form of energy into another form. A crankshaft is one of the parts of an engine. It receives power from the pistons and connecting rods and transmits power to the flywheel and clutch. And it also converts reciprocating motion of piston into rotary motion. The crankshaft is subjected to shock and fatigue loads. The separate processes occurring in engine are considered and calculated with a view to determine the expected parameters of the cycle, the engine power and performance and the pressure of the gases in the space above the piston depending on the angle of crank travel. The basic dimensions of an engine, cylinder diameter, stroke of piston, diameter and length of main journal, diameter and length of crank pin, distance between two adjacent cylinders, the width and thickness of crank cheek, radius of fillet between cheek and main journal, and radius of fillet between cheek and crank pin are calculated from the expected parameters of the cycle. Masses of reciprocating part, connecting rod and crank are also calculated to determine the centrifugal forces. The forces of gas pressure in the cylinder, the forces of inertia of the moving parts in the mechanism and the friction forces are also calculated to find the transmitted force, normal force, and force along the connecting rod. Torque transferred via the crankshaft to the flywheel and transmission system, and tilting moments are also determined from the net force.
