Stress analysis of a cylinder block of compression ignition, small swept capacity engine

The work contains calculations to determine the deformations and stresses in the block of the currently produced engine with compression ignition, with a small displacement. In the first step, based on measurements, the model of the engine block was developed. The Autodesk Inventor 2016 program was used. Two additional components were also designed to provide the block closure: a simplified head and integrated main crankshaft bearing caps. All elements were imported to the Siemens NX 12 program. The calculations were carried out for different cylinders and different values of the combustion pressure. An attempt was made to introduce some modifications to reduce the weight of the calculated element.
