The following data relate to the connecting rod of reciprocating engines Mass=50 kg. Distance between bearing centers = 900 mm, Diameter of the big end bearing = 100 mm, Diameter of small end bearing = 80 mm, Time of oscillation when a connecting rod is suspended from big end = 1.7 sec and small end = 1.85 sec,
- The radius of gyration ‘k’ of the rod about an axis through center of mass perpendicular to plane of oscillation,
- the moment of inertia of the rod about same axis, and
- The dynamically equivalent system of the connecting rod comprising two masses, one at the small end bearing center.
