Fatigue Strength and Modal Analysis of S195 Engine Crankshaft
Fatigue rupture is the major reason of crankshaft parts failure. Traditional fatigue analysis is fairly complicated and causes a great error. The finite element model of s195 engine crankshaft is created under SolidWorks environment, whose static analysis and fatigue analysis is carried out by using Simulation module. Also the vibration character of the crankshaft is calculated through modal analysis. Result shows the fatigue strength of the crankshaft is enough and it will not produce resonance in operation.
