Has anyone ever put the Model T engine in an engineering format like pro engineer or solid works? One of my engineers here was thinking about putting through finite element analysis. It came up in conversation as I was taking apart an engine here at work for some spare parts.

Very nice presentation and use of the program. Being picky, I'll mention that it is a '26-'27 block and they have showed straight cut timing gears. The angled teeth no doubt gave them some problems. Also, they installed the cam bearings into the block before installing the camshaft. I can't do that. Aluminum pistons and adjustable tappets are nice. I might have preferred cast iron and Champion spark plugs, but that's just me. It is nice to see a modern depiction of the old T engine. Great work.

Ivan - That is fantastic!

How accurate is it?

I am going to try to put it on my iPad for show and tell when people are looking at the T

Fred,
It is very well done.

How accurate you ask?

Well a few things jump out, you don't use straight cut gears on a generator block, connecting rods are fitted backwards and ring gaps are in line.

Now, that was cool.

Yes, that is brilliant! I did notice "errors" but I give them no mention. Heck, I could Never create something like that simulation. I am thankful every time that I am at this computer that I don't inadvertently hit the "Delete All Files" key.

I like the second video ALSO of the second starting of a T engine! Won't pass smog in Califunny!

Hi All,
Its a well done video drawn in Solids Works. Its a bit harder to draw the angle gears. Its just a few steps more but if you are not a gear guy then you may never need to. The block has no valve angle and pistons 1& 4 come out farther that 2&3. But for most everyone it is a nice video. Scott

There are .stl stereo lithography CAD models of the 1914 engine that were created for the T-100 project. I don't think there is enough there for a finite element analysis though.

Those are really interesting videos. I have not seen them before. Lots of good videos listed on those sites. Thanks

That is a great video.

I imagine the gears are straight cut as there is too much overhead modelling helical involute.

I drew up the T Transmission in Solidworks about 15 years ago. I had it all stored on about 15 floppy disks. I'm not sure what happened to those.

Here's the original thread about the youtube animation: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/118802/144442.html?1276305860

It was David Harrison's daughter who created it as a student project at UC Berkeley in 2010.
