Wheels, Cranks, and Cams: An Animated Spreadsheet-Based Mathematical Model of a Four-Stroke Engine.
Callender, J. T.; Jackson, R.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v29 n2 p187-94 Mar-Apr 1998
Analyzes the mathematics of rotational and translational motion and how one can influence the other in the context of cams and cranks. Describes how the individual components can be brought together to simulate a four-stroke engine and how the engine animates again using the same simple macro. (Author/ASK)
