Various mechanical behaviors will happen at the same time when an engine operates. Based on this concept, in this paper, a systematical analysis method is presented to analyze the multiple mechanical behaviors (tribology, dynamics, stiffness, and strength) of the crankshaft-bearing system in an engine. By this method, the analyses of the tribology of bearing, the dynamics of crankshaft-bearing system and the dynamic stress of crankshaft can be accomplished simultaneously. For example, the effect of the journal misalignment of crankshaft and the elastic deformation of bearing bush on the dynamics of crankshaft-bearing system, the tribological performances of main bearings and the dynamic stress of crankshaft are analyzed emphatically. The results show that the journal misalignment of crankshaft and the elastic deformation of bearing bush have remarkable effect on the tribological performances of main bearings and the dynamic stress of crankshaft, but have little effect on the dynamics of crankshaft-bearing system.
