The paper discusses the importance of a numerical method for fast and accurate prediction of main bearing loads of inner combustion engine and its place in the concept phase of engine development process.

An approach based on linear dynamic analysis of 3D engine model in frequency domain is presented. Implemented within a separate module of AVL software package EXCITE Designer, it delivers a combination of accuracy and performance suitable for this task.

An application example illustrates the method.
