Finite Element Analysis of Farm Engine Crankshaft
In this paper, with the ANSYS, stress distribution and safety factor of crankshaft were analyzed by using 3D finite element method. The results show that the exposed destructive position is the crankpin and the transition circular bead location of main journal. Maximum stress is 156 MPa. Safety factor is 3.22. Maximum deformation is 0.462 mm. Crankshaft satisfies the design requirement.
