I have this 6 cylinder radial engine designed in Solidworks. Rendering Rendering Blueprint Blueprint (Source:Inventor Wizards)

And I want to perform some motion analysis on this engine to make some prediction about it's feasibility. So by now I have successfully completed the motion study simulation and generated plots of piston acceleration against time. Acc-Time Plot Plotted for a crankshaft speed of 200RPM.

Can i use some method or this data to predict acceleration of large scale model of this engine?

  • $\begingroup$ @NickAlexeev I'm sorry, I posted the link in plain text. The question might be moderated. Anyways, I've corrected the link do check it now. $\endgroup$ – Asker May 12 '16 at 21:11
  • $\begingroup$ The link now points to a zip archive. Seriously, if you want people to take a look at your question, you're going to have to make it a lot easier for them than that. Put a key image or two right in the question, and be more specific about the issue you want us to address. $\endgroup$ – Dave Tweed May 13 '16 at 15:08
  • $\begingroup$ @DaveTweed Actually there was a whole lot of blueprints for individual parts, and I was posting with the app. I'm really sorry for the inconvenience. Now I've pointed the link to the main site (Instead of the blueprint files). And added some images. Kindly check it now. $\endgroup$ – Asker May 13 '16 at 15:55
  • $\begingroup$ OK, first question: Do you understand why commercial radial engines almost universally have an odd number of cylinders? $\endgroup$ – Dave Tweed May 13 '16 at 17:01
