Re-design of a testing rig for a Small Scale Steam Power engine (English)
Abstract [en]

The actual project presents the development of a testing rig for a steam engine. A short overview

about the development of steam engines is presented, until arriving to the development of the

present engine, which will require to be tested in different ways.

The testing rig studied on this project (based on a Lanchester engine) will be used to test

different materials and layouts for the group Piston-Cylinder.

The engine is a high performance steam power engine, which is going to have a high

power/dimensions ratio, what will lead to require high performance components and materials.

An introduction to the testing rig is presented, and the entire design project is done in order to

replace the disappeared documentation of the current testing rig, built on the 1970’s. Also some

modifications done in the original testing rig are presented, as well as some detected problems

and their possible solutions.

Abstract [es]

El següent projecte presenta el desenvolupament d’un banc de proves per a un motor de vapor.

Una curta introducció sobre el desenvolupament dels motors de vapor es duu a terme, per acabar

parlant del disseny i especificacions generals del nou motor de vapor en estudi. Aquest motor és

el que requereix l’ús del banc de proves per dur a terme diferents experiments de dimensions i

materials per al grup Pistó-Cilindre.

El motor de vapor és un motor d’altes prestacions que tindrà un rati potència/dimensions molt

elevat, cosa que condueix a requerir materials i components també d’altres prestacions.

Una introducció al banc de proves emprat és presentada, i el complert projecte de disseny

d’aquest és dut a terme per tal de substituir tota la documentació desapareguda de l’actual banc

de proves, construït als anys 70. També es duen a terme algunes modificacions del banc de

proves original, així com també es comenten alguns problemes detectats i les seves possibles
