Slider Crank Mechanism Magnitude and Direction

  1. May 7, 2016 #1
    I am currently studying design engineering and my lecturer has left just before an exam. I really don't know how to find the magnitude and direction of the total force transmitted to the connecting rod at A. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    A drawing or sketch of point A would help. And are the loads to include those due to accelerations of the compressor parts? What other load components are there (gas compression, I'm imagining)?
