Downunder Posted July 22, 2008 Share Posted July 22, 2008 As the heading states, I need to calculate the force in newtons of a big end conrod bearing onto the crank pin. Is there an online calculator, or formula? Would the same force apply to the piston pin bearing. Obviously the force of the piston pushes the rod down and then the counterweght brings the piston back up(single cylinder) so there maybe a calculation for average and maximun force? Probably not as simple as that? The engine would be two stroke petrol with oil mix. I should say this is part of an alternative bearing material investigation and will not be used in a man carrying aircraft. Any help or tips would be appreciated.
