Cummins Brasil LTDA-Tadeus Marchesi, Wagner Trindade
by SAE International in United States
A Cummins internal project demanded the development of a new crankshaft pulley. This new pulley will be mounted in the engine, but before this mounting process, a validation phase must be accomplished with the primary goal of avoiding failures during engine tests and, most of all, during vehicle operation. This article documents part of the work done to validate the new pulley, aiming to deliver a component that meets the specification demanded by the application to be released in the market. It is presented how acceptable unreliability of the pulley was assessed by means of fatigue testing. Several approaches could be used, but following internal standards for this kind of component, the procedure chosen was the staircase fatigue method. After finishing the testing phase and data treatment, the findings indicated that the new crankshaft pulley presented infinite life when subjected to the hub load found in the application with a design margin of 82%. Another validation that was carried out is related to the bolts used in the mounting. The bolted joint measurement and its…

SAE MOBILUS® Search Tips
Please note: All terms not contained within quotes, will be evaluated using the OR operator. This means that your search results will contain all results that contain ANY of the entered terms.
AND, OR, NOT
SAE MOBILUS supports the use of the AND, OR and NOT BOOLEAN operators ONLY function with the Advanced Search.
Using the asterisk, ( * ) allows you to search for a partial word. For example, entering a keyword search of aero* will search for any word beginning with aero.
Using the question mark, ( ? ) allows you to search for a word with a single character wildcard. For example, searching for t?re would match both tire and tyre
Words in double quotes " " are treated as a phrase. Conducting a search for "heat model" will return all results in which the exact phrase "heat model" is found, while "heat modeling" would NOT be included.
A term combined with a phrase will be joined with an OR operator.
Searching for Standards
When searching for a standard please use the entire Document Number assigned, which includes the abbreviation. A space can be used, or omitted between the abbreviation and number.
