Category: Tony's Tips, Locomotives & Miscellaneous. The envelope of the gear is a squat rectangle containing a long anchor link, small pitch circle and minimal expansion link swings and one might expect little problem in attaining good event equality. The valves on a steam engine control the flow of steam in and out of the cylinders. TSM is not as accurate or easy to use but good results are possible with patience. It is interesting to superimpose the model design over the Swindon drawing at the same scale (but without equating the valve and ports). I've added more detail to the union link. It was a 4-8-0, had a very high pressure boiler and used poppet valves. Tracing each item in the chain provides an overview of their functions and specific problems that can influence their design. This is why tables of events list different figures for midgear at the minimum of the forward tabulation than those for reverse. I am hoping someone can give me some pointers on rigging this valve gear. In this case the angle, length of return crank and eccentric rod length conform precisely and confirm the somewhat obscured pitch circle radius dimension. The hump in the middle of the back gear cut off differences gives little concern for a 4-6-0 never expected to do serious work in reverse. I want to know what sort of constraints I need to set up to get the rear end of the radius rod (8) to follow the curve of the expansion (reverse) link (7) when lifted by the reach rod (3) … It is simplistic to regard the crosshead contribution as the similar triangles portrayed in most texts and it is possible to employ the anchor link to delay or advance this component relative to that from the expansion link in order to equate the events of one port with those of the other. This isn't strictly necessary but there will be fewer confusing lines on the screen. The expansion link must sit square to the radius rod in mid gear and the so-called backset of the tailpin theoretically lessens as the inclination of the eccentric rod increases, and in many inside gear arrangements where the eccentric diameter might be excessive the pin may be well up towards the expansion link trunnions and cause the backset to become positive. There are small inherent timing errors at the return crank, which is normally set at the dead centres such that the tailpin of the expansion link assumes the same position in both cases. Where pure analysis of an existing gear is contemplated a CAD construction will prove invaluable in discovering those items either missing from a drawing or found to be incorrect. Young Valve Gear . Hide the link until the rod is animated. The Walschaerts valve gear is a type of steam engine valve gear invented by Belgian railway mechanical engineer Egide Walschaerts in 1844. The combination lever and radius rod require support either by a valve crosshead guide or by a hanger. If you haven't quartered the wheels you could mirror every part on the stb side to the port. Close the pin before attaching it to place on the radius rod. This will give us the 2 loci we need for the first draft. The pattern of events produced by the gear, particularly the differences column, should reflect those obtained by either the large gear model of the drawing office or those taken manually from a completed engine. Draw the details needed (clone the parts & send them to the other side; progress the frames until they coincide & attach them at that frame) & attach them, make doubly sure you add them to the link & not vise-versa. On the other hand, cut offs of 78.92% and 75.53% from a backset angular increase of some 5.5o are little different in equality from standard, giving the same port opening inequality from angular swings of 24.6o and 26.23o. The variables are legion and best resolved by computer simulation, where the results are assessed quickly. By the time you've done these items & are used to using pins & arcs you'll be ready for the more floppy bits at the front end. The Walschaerts valve gear is a type of steam engine valve gear invented by Belgian railway mechanical engineer Egide Walschaerts in 1844. I’ve got a start on it, but now I’m stuck. The backset has to be reduced by half in order to equate port openings, yet the cut offs remain similar at 78.14% and 72.54%. Service Sheet 02 Walschaerts Valve Gear Valve timing adjustment on Roundhouse locomotives. That the student should resist this temptation will soon become apparent; the alteration of a single part necessarily alters the whole. Any original design not conforming to We'll need more of our pins & a cylinder to aid plotting. Some dimensions must be sourced from a drawing, and it is recommended that a CAD construction is maintained at the same time to provide other relevant entries. Although some engineers did not favour using the upper expansion link half for forward running because the drive is then indirect, the position is in fact little different from the many cases of rocker use in valve gears, though the results are not at 180 degrees. Although a brief glance into history (except on the Continent) might place Stephenson’s gear as being largely replaced by Walschaerts’ gear around the turn of the 20 th century, both gears were invented almost simultaneously. In TSM the tools for rotating & moving pivots are under the 'transform' menu. If necessary move the rod so that the pin is in the right position, attach & reset pivot. You'll appreciate these words are totally meaningless - rod01 could be anything but MSTS will accept that a part named rod01 can be animated. The first common principle, though not inviolate, is that at either dead centre position of the crank the return crank and eccentric rod pair render the reverser unable to impart any motion to the valve throughout its full working range. Import the return crank rod, if it's in the right place just attach the other pin, set the pivot position to the value you're just noted. I suggest that Category:Locomotive valve gear be re-named Category:Steam engine valve gear. The Walschaerts valve gear was invented by Belgian railway mechanical engineer Egide Walschaerts. It is not often that a motion drawing adequately and distinctly provides all the information necessary in order to reconstruct the gear in CAD, but Thompson’s LNER B1 4-6-0 is one such. Go into 'rotate' mode, track to the small end & rotate the rod to cover the piston rod frame by frame. I don't think you can use wiper or pantograph names for a steam loco. Short wheelbase tank engines often suffer badly from compacted restrictions, making equality difficult to obtain. I only want to see an arc so convert to editable mesh & delete all the face polygons. Much of the compaction arises from the proximity of the cylinder to the driving axle and use of the trailing axle to originate the drive (like the USA Dock Tanks) would have created a better envelope. Before Starting In fact what is happening is the balancing of one component’s distortions against those of the other component. As a belt & braces precaution you could also, in point mode, have the crosshead just touch the guides - depends on the prototype. Unhide the link, rotate it so that the pins are co-incident. Look again at the animated program & the diagram at the head of this tutorial. Not only does this impose mediocre performance but the shortness of full gear cut off often leads to poor starting. The Walschaert Locomotive Valve Gear: A Practical Treatise on the Locomitive Valve Actuating Mechanism Originally Invented by Egide Walschaerts, with the History of Its Development by American and European Engine Designers, and Its Evolution Into the Mechanically Correct Locomotive Valve Gear of the Present Day It is mechanically necessary to provide in the anchor or union link a flexible connection. Backset of the tailpin is clearly zero and we can expect that the expansion link swings are unequal, in fact by 2.11 degrees. Link the parts directly driven by the wheel - coupling rods, connecting rods & return crank rods to the wheel, probably wheels2. I'm assuming that running gear parts have been made & just require animating. I've never seen one. 'Animate', 'rotate' & follow the rod. 'Move' & 'rotate' the lever, the rod & link will just be nudged with 'rotate'- this is where the arrows are most useful. Using the values in the 'x' window rotate the rod. What we might have to do now is to make sure the valve will move in a straight line. The unequal expansion link swings have therefore been deemed to offset the fixed dieblock excursions rather well in combination with a long anchor link. All this is largely relative to the production of equiangular swings, which may or may not be best for a particular design. With practice you'll be able to skip this first rough draft. Reset valves at each modification to ensure that the desired effect has taken place. Holcroft was evidently aware of this and promoted it on the Southern Railway, choosing a rather cramped arrangement which did it no special favours. The Walschaerts valve gear is a type of valve gear invented by Belgian railway mechanical engineer Egide Walschaerts in 1844 used to regulate the flow of steam to the pistons in Steam Engines. How Walschaerts Valve Gear in Steam Locomotives Works | 9to5animations.com - HD Wallpapers, Gifs, Backgrounds, Images This is important in two significant respects: firstly, the angularity problems are smaller and secondly the geometry dictates that the valve is driven from the upper pin of the combination lever, the ratio of which causes the radius rod to impart a relatively large movement of the upper pin. Even 1″ either side of the 13.8″ given length has but little influence and leaves the hanger arrangement fully in charge of the difficulties. This is an area where a better understanding of Gmax bones would be useful, we'll use the TSM method which is a bit hit & miss reducing errors rather than sticking to applied maths. This therefore places the anchor link at the forefront of Walschaerts’ critical adjustment areas, greatly influencing the shape of the curves presented in the simulator. Make the rod active. It may be noted that the return crank pin is the only one in the gear that revolves through 360o, hence the common use of a roller bearing, which is inappropriate for all the other pins. Walschaerts Valve Gear. 26,880, 25,455, and 27,275 lbs respectively are the recorded tractive efforts - all comfortably close in the mixed traffic area. This then sets the leads exactly equal once the valve is also set so. jump to content. This is not the whole story, of course, as the designer must be aware of all the accelerations and decelerations throughout a full cycle; the emphasis in design must be on timing values and not necessarily on distances. Walschaerts' gear has two distinct inputs, from the eccentric & from the crosshead. The Class 5 reflects LMS general practice at ¼″ but is stated as being divided slightly unequally between the ports, though it is not specified whether this setting is hot or cold. The technique I use makes use of guides & false pins which will be deleted once animation is complete. The effect on reversing these pins for inside admission valves is to impart a slightly reducing ratio, necessitating a much greater influence from the radius rod and hence the return crank throw, with a consequent increase in expansion link swings of around 20%. The other part should be attached to the crosshead front. Position the cylinder at the link pivot. The calculations at this stage assume equiangular swings of the expansion link. In full forward gear this accounts for 78.37% cut off (front) and 74% (rear) and a port opening disparity of almost 7/32″. In 1844 Egide Walschaerts invented a valve gear that by 1848 appeared very much as it does today. Some older American locos used bolt-on Walschaerts' or 'Baker' gear to update them. The next D&H locomotives were beautiful but conventional - 4-8-4 and 4-6-6-4, with normal cylinder layouts and Walschaerts valve gear. You could just call the stb crosshead rod01 & link the other stb parts to it, MSTS doesn't care about the names of child parts. If we want to take our animation a stage further we'll put the loco into forward gear. Symmetry abounds. Bear in mind that these areas of adjustment refer to the design stage. The picture shows a suspension that cannot support equality of valve excursions and there are many other examples. Model of Walschaert's valve gear, for teaching and demonstration, at the Hillside Railway Workshops, Dunedin ATLIB 311886.png 6,339 × 4,703; 21.06 MB National Railway Museum (8913).jpg 4,288 × 2,848; 5.57 MB The valve won't open sufficient to open the steam ports in the cylinder. The worldwide use of a hanger for the rear end of the radius rod was extensive, generally raising the number of badly orientated ones, and simulation with experience seems the only sensible way to go. you can use this model in your own sketchyphysics. In this grab the value is -8.9, 0, 0. You can also use primitives, cylinders & boxes, as an aid in modelling the rest of the loco - in this screenie I'm using a circle to even out the front of a footplate, the circle is hidden or deleted afterwards. The inside gear of the GWR 4-cylinder 4-6-0s avoided this constriction to advantage. my subreddits. It is a simple piece of geometry often ill-devised for no apparent reason and the gear’s ability to support equal leads, the smallest quantity in a large piece of machinery, is highly dependent upon this principle. The Walschaerts valve gear is a type of valve gear invented by Belgian railway mechanical engineer Egide Walschaerts in 1844 used to regulate the flow of steam to the pistons in steam engines.The gear is sometimes named without the final "s", since it was incorrectly patented under that name. Re: Walschaerts valve gear model Post by Manxman1831 » Thu Apr 19, 2012 1:01 pm York used to have an entire stack of apprentice/engineering models of valve gear types in the middle of the warehouse section. Whilst the B1 barely manages a constant 1/8th″ the Hall is 1/8th″ negative in full gear and does not reach 1/8th″ positive until the middle of its cut off working range. That is, at the neutral position, the valve ports should not open at all. Modellers rarely potter about on shunting duties and should design as befits the new role. There is an apparent assumption that at dead centres the union link is parallel with the gear line which is proven in the reconstruction, though another that purports the radius rod top pin, expansion link trunnion and weighshaft all to be in line proves not quite so. The return crank angle depends on the pitch circle and the distance and height of the expansion link tailpin relative to the axle at dead centres. How many model railway locos have you seen which move the gear before reversing? It shows forward gear and the expansion link near mid swing, yet the awkward placing of weighshaft and lifting components denies symmetry in operation. The eccentric end is easy to understand, the return crank (eccentric) imparts movement to the return crank rod (eccentric rod) which causes the expansion link to rock about its fixed pivot. Import your union link & combination lever, place pins at the appropriate pivot points. Animating the Valve Gear. Gmax alows you to nudge the rotation with the arrows next to the window. For TSM start a new model by using 'parts' then 'load' menus. TSM seems to link animation to the datum point - if you move a part after animating it will leap back to its original position; there is no quick fix. Most of these were slide valve fitted. More surprising in this particular case is the resistance of the anchor link to affect results. The crosshead: animating this is straight forward if your cylinder axis is horizontal. Overview Most of the time a loco will be working at about 30% cut-off. The primary reason for a more universal adoption of Walschaerts’ gear was its general suitability for mounting outside the frames, convenient for maintenance and permitting more strongly braced frames. In right hand elevation the backset produces an anticlockwise angle of 24.43o and a clockwise one of 24.33o – essentially equal. And the less said about back gear the better! The zero backset in the LNER B1 could hardly ‘work out’ to that figure – it is obviously implanted deliberately. It was extensively used in steam locomotives from the late 19th century until the end of the steam era. If you're going wrong undo a step or two. It helps if we have only the parts needed for this project adding parts as needed. I've described TSM animation in the loco tutorial. The Stephenson valve gear remained the most popularly used valve gear on 19th-century locomotives. The Walschaerts valve gear was slow to gain popularity.
