This Series provides the necessary elements to the development and validation of numerical prediction models for hydrodynamic bearings. This book with the specific case of internal combustion engine (ICE) journal bearing lubrication. Many examples, relating to various types of ICE, are presented.
1. Kinematics and dynamics of moving parts.
2. The crankshaft-rod connection.
3. The link rod and piston.
4. Block the binding engine crankshaft.
