Vibrations of an Internal Combustion Engine

The problem of forced nonlinear periodic vibrations of an internal combustion engine (ICE) is considered (Fridman et al. in Nonlinear chaotic and periodic vibrations in an internal combustion engine, pp. 403–406, ). The widespread design of the piston ICE involves a system of three shafts interconnected by gear wheels. These shafts are the crankshaft and two camshafts. In stationary operation mode the ICE shafts and gear wheels perform periodic torsional vibrations. The vibrations arise under the action of periodic torques that are generated by crank mechanisms. In turn, these mechanisms are driven by reciprocating motion of the pistons inside the ICE cylinders.
