Excerpt: ...simply find, first, the diameter of the bolts required to resist a shearing force, and then add to this diameter a certain amount to allow for the forces due to the unevenness of tracks, loose boxes, etc., which sum will also be sufficient for the stress due to the momentum of the rod. 322. Let us first consider the diameters of bolts required for side-rod straps in eight-wheeled passenger engines. We have already seen that, in this class of engines, there are two driving wheels on each side, and that the motion to the rear driving wheel is transmitted through the side-rod, which connects the two. Now let us assume, as we have done before, that the whole steam pressure on the piston is utilized in giving motion to the wheels. Under this assumption, the force acting in the direction of the length of the side-rod will be equal to one-half the total maximum steam pressure on the piston, and will represent an assumed shearing force, to which the bolts are subjected. Now, having established, for the purpose of our calculations, a shearing force, we next determine an area proportional to this force, and this may be done in a manner similar to that adopted for finding cross-sectional area of the main-rod strap bolts, namely, divide the pressure on the side-rod, which in this case is assumed to be equal to one-half of the total maximum steam pressure on the piston, by 8,000; the quotient will give us an area proportional to our assumed shearing force; but since this area is greater than that required for the actual shearing force, we have also made, to a great extent, an allowance for the force due to the momentum. For the sake of brevity, hereafter we shall refer to this area as a simple shearing area, and the force to which it is proportioned...
Inhaltsangabe: Created in 1892 by J.G.A. Meyer, the former chief draftsman at the Grant Locomotive Works, MODERN LOCOMOTIVE CONSTRUCTION is one of the most in-depth documents to emerge from the age of steam. Regarded as "the Bible" of steam engines, it is replete with information about every aspect of locomotive building and maintenance. This text can educate even the most learned railroader and answer questions you never even knew you had. Running over 660 pages, this book is an encyclopedic discussion of operating components including but not limited to cylinders, valve gears, frames, pistons, driving axles, main rods, throttle pipes and gear, spring gear, boilers, smoke stacks, sand boxes, trucks, tenders, and more. Exceptionally well-written and richly illustrated, this book educated a generation of engineers and draftsman. Regarded as exceptionally rare, it's never been easy to lay your hands on this wonderful book, until now! This new paperback edition represents the first time MODERN LOCOMOTIVE CONSTRUCTION has been available in over 100 years.
