Improvement in CAM Shaft Design: An Experimental Application and Recommendation
A new design of CAM shaft has been investigated for Campro engine 3.0L V4 engine. The new design adds a modification to Cam profile peak point in the Camshaft to be controllable at different speeds through a hydraulic system. The new design was simulated in CFD for tolerating stresses. The new design promotes Cams to give the exact heights at different engine speed depending on the optimize value valve opening time. At the same time this paper discusses the prediction of power performance of internal combustion engines with the new design. The expected result will significantly improve the engine speed-torque curve, reduce emission gases, and reduce fuel consumption. The new design model predictions need to be tested experimentally for further improvement in the hydraulic system before the commercial use.
