This paper derives equations for the radial and transverse components of the acceleration of an apex seal in the rotor of a Wankel rotary compressor. Then the equations are modified to include the effects of two cyclic fluctuations in the crankshaft speed during start-up and a simple harmonic fluctuation in the nominal operating speed. Following this, we investigate a dynamic force analysis of the seal including the friction forces between the tip of the seal and the housing and between the… CONTINUE READING
