PISTON MOTION
INTRODUCTION
Piston motion is determined in terms of travel, speed, acceleration, and vibration. A
crankshaft connects a number of components that can be used to capture the drivetrain energy
during the rotational motion as well as combustion. The crankshaft is designed such that there is
a backbone centrally located to hold all the other components via a coaxial cylindrical rod. It is
referred to as the crankpin. The crankshaft turns the pistons up and down in a circular motion.
For the piston to spin evenly, other components are added to the crankshaft to help the engine
run smoothly. In the crankshaft, the crank pin transfers the force of the piston and connecting
rods into a rotational power. The piston velocity is given as the instantaneous rate of change in
the position of the system with respect to a reference variable. It is the first derivative of the
position curve. To determine the mean piston speed,

The piston acceleration determines the force exerted with respect to the weight of the object and
the acceleration.

CALCULATION AND ANALYSIS
For the powertrain crank rotation, the change in the rotation angle has an impact on the piston
motion and as a result, the travel distance and acceleration.

DISCUSSION
There are different automotive components that rely on the lubrication that is applied on the
engine for it to operate and every experience affects more than one regime of lubrication for a
