Choose any real time structural or machine component, part, and member subjected to loading
that you are familiar with (e.g. a beam). The chosen problem should be complex enough that you can
write something about it, but not so complex that you get bogged in a lot of details.
Thorough analysis is expected in terms of:
a. Problem statement with design limitations, requirements with assumptions.
b. Complete analytical calculations with proper description
c. Proper drawing of the component, part or member with dimensions and application of loads.
d. Free body diagram, shear force diagram, and bending moment diagram wherever necessary.
e. Normal and shear stress distributions wherever applicable.
f. Factor of Safety.
onsidering the connecting rod of the ic engine, the analytical analysis of the same is carried out.
connecting rod is a rotating element that is mounted on a crankshaft and the other end is connected to the piston by means of a gudgeon pin. the load on the piston is responsible for the rotation of the crankshaft by means of the connecting rod.
Analytical solution :
