W16 Engine: Block and Cylinder Heads

In this post about the W16 engine I will show the calculation of the camshaft phase angles and then detail the mating of the components in the cylinder heads with the rest of the engine.

 

 

Another animation that better allows to see the full movement of the engine can be found here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ci7m0j5iCAQ).

See detailed explanations in the extended entry at the end of the post.

At the request of a reader I will upload the complete assembly but hide the parts that I have not presented yet. Download Engine.

 

Thank you for reading about this build and stay tuned for the next post which will detail the build of the intake manifold through top-down design strategy.

Solidworks W16 Engine

This is a model of the W16 Turbo engine used in the world’s fastest production car. I modeled it as a final project for the Introduction to CAD class. During the next few weeks I will walk you through the build, post the files and explain some of the math behind it. This post will cover the modeling of the basic piston:
