Abstract

In this paper, a new configuration of Crank-Rocker (CR) model has been proposed by duplicating its mechanism. The method has been implemented to overcome vibration problem on a single-piston Crank-Rocker engine caused by system unbalance. The new method suggests combining conventional method of adding counterweights to reduce shaking forces and eliminating the inertial moments on system by implementing the new layout. A dynamic study of the new model is presented, then the objective function is derived and implemented to perform the optimization process. Related design variables and system constraints are introduced to determine attached counterweights optimized characteristics. For results validation, the simulation, dynamic analysis, and optimization process were conducted using ADAMS VIEW® software. The output results were presented and discussed to verify the validity of the suggested method. It was noticed that the method was very effective and has managed to reduce the total shaking forces by about 91, shaking moment by about 66; and the driving torque by 27. © 2021.
