Dual-number techniques are used to analyze the dynamics of the slider crank mechanism generalized to consider the effects of the cylinder axis being offset and non-perpendicular to the crankshaft axis, conditions which result in reciprocating machinery such as engines and compressor from manufacturing tolerances. Results for various cases are shown and the implications for the design engineers are discussed.
