The paper investigates the valve train system of a 4-stroke single cylinder engine. An integrated approach for the dynamics and tribological behavior of the mechanism, as well as cam-tappet contact characteristics is described. The proposed model predicts the cam-tappet contact sub-surface stress field as well as contact deflection. Experimental validation is provided for the dynamic model with a motored test rig, using Laser Doppler vibrometry (LDV). The model can be used in the design stage or for design evaluation.
