Optimization of Crank Shaft using FEA

Mr. J. E. Pachpande, Prof. Dheeraj Verma and Prof. Nitin Kharche


The modal analysis of a 3-cylinder crankshaft of SWARAJ 855 XM tractor is being analyzed using finite element method. Crankshaft is a large volume production component with a complex geometry in the internal combustion engine. This converts the reciprocating displacement of the piston in to rotary motion of the crank. The crankshaft is subjected to shock and fatigue loads causing various stresses are induced in crankshaft so progressive fracture on crankshaft surface due to induced stresses. The crankshaft model was created by using PRO-E wildfire 4.0 for modeling the crank shaft. Then, the created model was import into ANSYS software for static structural analysis. The stresses induced on crankshaft was investigated through a systematic force analysis in ANSYS for different kind of two materials like forged steel, steel alloy CrMoV13 with same operating condition. In finite element analysis of different materials have done static structural analysis by putting the values of properties in ANSYS. In force analysis have calculated total deformations, maximum shear stress, equivalent (von-misses) stress, shear stress, maximum principle stress. The comparison of analysis results of two different materials will show the effect of stresses on different materials and to evaluate the most suitable material for manufacturing crankshaft which gives good performance and to avoid possible structural damages on the crankshaft surface.
