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.
A Formula 1 (F1) racing engine is designed to operate for 30 hours at 15 000 rpm. The maximum stress on theengine’s connecting rods at those rotational speeds may reach 500 MPa. It is proposed to make the connectingrods from a titanium alloy that has the following properties: ρ=4430 kg/m3 E=114 GPa ν=0.34 σy=1103 MPa KIc=44 to 66 MPa·√m Fatigue testing shows
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.
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 ...
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
The current generation of Formula One cars are powered by high-performance downsized, turbocharged and electrified hybrid Power Units. This week, we’re looking at the mechanical heart of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Power Unit, the Internal Combustion Engine and its Formula 1 engine development journey since 2014.
