A crankshaft contains two or more centrally-located coaxial cylindrical ("Main") journals and one or more offset cylindrical crankpin ("Rod") journals. The design of the Crankshaft considers the dynamic loading and the optimization a lead to a shaft diameter satisfying the requirements of automobile's specifications with cost and size effectiveness. Microsoft visual studio package was used in the development of this software, which is capable of designing the shaft with reference to its easy interface, being an open system and its ease of file formats acceptability. It was used during the entire cycle of this software development (analysis phase, design phase and implementation phase).
