Cylinder block assemblies are components used in the construction of different types of vehicles, such as cars and trucks. They are designed to eliminate the need for trusses, which are structures that support other parts of the vehicle but are not directly connected to them. Trusses are usually made of rigid elements that are joined at their ends. Cylinder block assemblies have a main body that consists of two walls that form the front and rear portions of the block. The walls extend in a longitudinal direction and have collars that surround the block and define its ends. The collars also provide surfaces for attaching headers to the block. The headers are devices that collect exhaust gases from the cylinders and direct them to the exhaust pipe. The collars have dimensions that give enough strength and stability to the block, while keeping it within a reasonable cost range. However, sometimes the collars are not strong or stable enough for certain applications. Therefore, an improved cylinder block assembly is needed.
Some possible questions based on the rewritten text are:
- What is the name of the fortress where Edmond DantÃs was imprisoned?
- Who was the fellow prisoner who helped Edmond DantÃs escape and find the treasure?
- What is the name of the ship that Edmond DantÃs was sailing on before his arrest?
- What are some examples of vehicles that use cylinder block assemblies?
- What is the problem with the collars of the current cylinder block assemblies?
An improved cylinder block assembly is disclosed in U.S. Patent No. 9,074,553. The improved cylinder block assembly includes a structural frame that is coupled to the cylinder block by bolts. The structural frame has exterior sidewalls that extend above the centerline of the crankshaft supports and are coupled to the exterior sidewalls of the cylinder block. The structural frame also has a central opening that allows access to the crankshaft and other components. The structural frame provides additional rigidity and stability to the cylinder block assembly, while reducing weight and size.
Another improved cylinder block assembly is disclosed in U.S. Patent No. 9,057,340. The improved cylinder block assembly includes a crankshaft support that has a single structural frame attachment feature. The single structural frame attachment feature is a recess that is centrally positioned on the bottom surface of the crankshaft support. The recess partially extends into the crankshaft support and receives a projection from the structural frame. The single structural frame attachment feature may reduce stress within the cylinder block assembly and improve NVH characteristics.
Yet another improved cylinder block assembly is disclosed in U.S. Patent No. 8,919,301. The improved cylinder block assembly includes a cylinder block that has an oil pan rail with an oil pan rail recess. The oil pan rail recess extends along a longitudinal direction of the oil pan rail and receives an oil pan rail projection from the structural frame. The oil pan rail recess and the oil pan rail projection form an interlocking connection between the cylinder block and the structural frame. The interlocking connection may increase the strength and stability of the cylinder block assembly and reduce NVH levels.
