1. INTRODUCTION

## The mechanisms of a linear reciprocating motion are widely used

nowadays. Some examples are engines and compressors which require the
piston to move in exact distance; (stroke) as the crank is continuously move.
There are 2 types of slider crank mechanisms which are:
1) In-line slider crank
2) Offset slider crank

## The aim of the project is to produce an Offset slider crank mechanism

with linear reciprocating motion of a slider along the horizontal shaft under certain
constraint which can produce the highest number of strokes per unit time as
permitted by other parameter. The restriction condition for our group are; stroke =
350mm , max length = 660 mm , max velocity = 1500mm/s.

## The design requirements are as follows:

1) The speed of the motor shaft must be in multiple 10rpm
2) Speed of working stroke must never exceed Vmax
3) The time taken for return stroke should be in between 60%-95% of the
time working stroke.
4) Coupler ratio must larger than 3
5) Maximum dimension of the working space must not exceed Lmax and its
width, W must be minimized.

2. METHODOLOGY

## 2.1 DESIGN STEPS

To begin the design approach, we must obey some constraints which are:

1) STROKE ≥ 2 L2
The length of piston stroke assigned is 350mm. Thus, there will be a limitation for
L2 which is:
L2 < 350/2 = 175 mm
2) Coupler ratio must be greater than 3
This follows the Rule of Thumb. The coupler ratio should be as
minimum as possible, so the used width (W) can be minimize and
not exceeding the Lmax. The coupler ratio is:
Coupler ratio = L3/L2
We chose the coupler ratio to be 3.1 to get a compact design.
3) Length of L3 must be small
We need to make L3 as small as possible in order to increase the
acceleration and thus increase the number of strokes per unit time
(rpm)
4) The rule state that the speed of the motor shaft must be in a multiple of
10 rpm. Thus, after trial and error, we have chosen ω = 110 rpm.

Where:
a = L2+L3
b = L3 - L2
Stroke, c = 350 mm

We will get the value of the imbalance angle, β and P by using cosine rule:
c2 = a2 + b2 – 2 abcos (β)
b2 = a2 + c2 – 2 accos (P)

__L1 = a__
sin P sin 90°

L1 b

## By using pythogoras theorem:

d = b 2 − L12
d+c=e

e = a 2 − L21
Used Lmax = e + L2

θ 2 = crank angle

## θ 3 = sin-1 [(L1+L2 sin θ 2) / L3]

L4 = L2 cos θ 2 + L3 cos θ 3

To calculate time:

∆t=∆θ/ω

## And to calculate time ratio by:

180 o + β
Q=
180 o − β

To determine the time taken by the return stroke be anywhere between 60% to
95% of the time for the working stroke, we use this equation:

Percentage = 100 / Q

3.1 The crank radius, the length of the coupler and the offset

The crank radius, L2 is selected from table A1 is the best length of the design,
which is:

L2=120mm

## where coupler ratio is set as 3.1

L3 = 3.1 x 120
L3 = 372mm

The offset:

L1 a
=
sin P sin 90

L1 = a sin P

Where

8
MAB2083 MECHANICS OF MACHINES

a = L2+L3
a = 120 + 372= 492 mm

b = L3 - L2
b =372– 120 = 252 mm

c = 350mm

## P = cos-1 ((a2+ c2)-b2) / 2ac

P = cos-1 ((4922+ 3502)-2522) / 2(492)(350)
P = 29.1o or 0.5078 rad

Thus:

L1 = a sin P
= 492 sin 29.1o = 238.9mm

3.2 The cycle time, the times for the working and return strokes, the time ratio and
the imbalance angle

Tcycle = 1/ω

= 0.5454 sec

## The imbalance angle:

c2 = a2 + b2 – 2 abcos(β)
β = cos-1((a2+ b2)-c2) / 2ab
= cos-1 ((4922+ 2522)-3502) / 2(492)(252)
= 42.4o

## The time ratio;

180 o + β
Q=
180 o − β
180 o + 42.4o
=
180 o − 42.4o
= 1.6

The times for the working (assumed forward) and return strokes;

## Tcycle= tworking + treturn

Tworking + treturn = 0.5454………………...(1)

## treturn = 0.21 sec

tworking = 0.34 sec

## 3.3 The crankshaft speed in rpm

The speed has been determined by try and error approach and selected from
Table A1, which is:

ω = 110 rpm

## 3.4 Working area required by the mechanism
