An investigation of the vibratory bending response of the elastic connecting rod of a slider-crank mechanism is presented. The response of the system is found to be dependent upon five dimensionless parameters. These are classified as the length, mass, damping, external piston force, and frequency parameters; and the effects of these parameters on the response of the system are investigated. The dynamic behavior is described as graphs of nondimensionalized deflection versus crank angle. Solutions of the linear as well as the nonlinear forms of the equations are included.
