Layout of Highly Stressed Injection and Motor Components
- 14 Downloads
Hydraulic autofrettage as a means of increasing fatigue life of components charged with internal high-pressure (for example common rails for Diesel-injection systems) is establishing itself progressively in the field of off-highway engines. During computational layout of this process step, consideration of anisotropic material behaviour is of primary importance. So far, local quite possibly directional component-strength (such as due to prior autofrettage) has not been taken into account among standards to evaluation of durability for forged components. In the context of a joint development project this gap has been closed by Hirschvogel Automotive Group, Engineering Center Steyr and Transvalor.
