1. Introduction As one of the main kinetic components enabling the operation of high-speed and high-power Formula One engines, connecting rods (conrods) are the subject of a constant quest for weight reductions and increases in strength and rigidity. For this reason, titanium alloys displaying high specific strength were applied in their manufacture. In 2000, weight savings were achieved through the use of a β-rich α+β titanium alloy, SP-700(1),

connecting rods materials. All that has to do with the power train, gearbox, clutch, fuels and lubricants, etc. Generally the mechanical side of Formula One. But I thought aluminium was a good bearing material. If a conrod is made of aluminium then I presume seperate plain bearings wouldn't be needed.
What you see in these pictures is a genuine Formula 1 piston, piston pin and connecting rod. It was taken from a Peugeot A20 V-10 engine that powered Jean Alesi and Nick Heidfeld 's Prost AP03s ...
Transcribed image text: -0:47 3 Question 6 This is a Formula 1 connecting rod, which operates at engine speeds of 20,000 rpm and experiences accelerations of 10,000 g. What material do you think this component is made from? Select one: Steel Magnesium Aluminium Titanium Question 10 The exhaust is made from a welded high grade steel.
Before it was banned, titanium aluminide found favour in Formula One for valves, as it was stiffer and less dense than the titanium it replaced. It has been used as a con rod material in motorsport, although not widely.
At the very heart of the PU sits the Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). It’s a structural member of the car, connecting the chassis to the gearbox. The current F1 engines are six-cylinder engines, constructed in a V-configuration at 90 degrees, with a 1.6-litre displacement. The second element is the turbocharger (TC), which increases the ...
2) Thrust acting on connecting rod is given as F P / cos Φ here, F P = Piston effort 3) Tangential force on crank shaft is given as F T = F Q sin (θ + Φ) here, F Q = Thrust acting on connecting rod 4) Force acting on radial in direction is given as (F R) = F Q cos (θ + Φ) here, F Q = Thrust acting on connecting rod
At auction a beautiful Ferrari F1 connecting rod in titanium with piston, belonging to the engine of the F1 single-seater. The item is really beautiful and precious, placed on a leather and suede base with the Ferrari logo at the bottom and a silver prancing horse at the eye of the connecting rod. An item to keep with
