Paper Abstract

The connecting rod, which transmits the forces due to the pressure of the gas from the piston to the crankshaft, is also subjected to great traction forces due to the inertia of the piston. Deformations caused by these forces should not be too great, in particular not in the zone of contact with the crankshaft; the lubricant layer must remain continuous to avoid excessive wear. Such deformations are created, using static simulations of the traction forces, and were measured by using double exposure speckle photography.
