That's a lot of information in a small space, thanks.

Thanks for posting.

But to put things in perspective:

Austin Seven two bearing crankshaft:

Amazingly they will run 6k rpm

Here's Alfa Romeo's take on a 4 cylinder crank from the mid 50's through the end of production of the Alfa designed engines.

There were some initial problems with bolt-on counterweights, which resulted (as one Formula One designer told me) in "several deep holes being dug in the surface of a few racetracks". There are tensile and fatigue stress issues, as well as the inevitable fretting between contact surfaces and the requirement for highly developed fastener technology.


Having observed more than a couple of high cycle fatigue failures of turbine blades, with horizontal shaft rotating equipment, there is obviously a 2g difference in the centripetal acceleration at 12:00 versus 6:00.

Most of the genuine high cycle fatigue (calc'd at 170x10^6 cycles from crack to failure in most) ones that I've seen have ultimately failed at around 6:00, as evidenced by trajectories and consequential damage.
