THE advent of higher engine operating speeds and output, has made it increasingly difficult to assess the strength of crankshafts of modern internal combustion engines by analytical methods. Nevertheless, the evaluation of a reasonably accurate estimate of the loads acting on this component is of immense importance to the engine designer, and in this paper the writer reviews suitable treatment for application to the crankshaft of an in‐line and a radial engine.
