Forces at Reciprocating Engines
Advanced Technocracy Inc. is Manufacturer, Exporter & Supplier of Forces at Reciprocating Engines.
- Every reciprocating engine generates mass forces. The mass forces of the oscillating masses can't be compensated completely while the mass forces of the rotating masses are fully compensated. By using several cylinders it is possible that the forces compensate each other. Still, disturbing moments may occur.
- The experimental unit enables to investigate the free masses and moments of a reciprocating engine with a single cylinder, with two cylinders or with four cylinders.
- The engine model comprises pistons with plastic slide bushes. The slide bushes don't require lubrification. For each cylinder, the angle between cranks can be adjusted continuously. As an aid, marks are provided at 0°, 90°, 180° and 270°.
Learning Objectives / Experiments
Effect of mass forces
- mass forces in dependence on the speed
- mass forces in dependence on the piston mass
- first and second order mass forces
Comparison of different crank drives
- 4-cylinder, symmetrical, 180° angle between cranks
- 4-cylinder, non-symmetrical, 90° angle between cranks
- 2-cylinder, 180° angle between cranks
- single cylinder
