Technology - Crankshaft

FEA analysis was performed to validate the “one piece integral flange crankshaft” design.

The main simulations performed were:
- Stress/Fatigue analysis with piston forces and propeller gyroscopic load;
- Modal analysis
- Torsional forced response analysis
- Oil film analysis
