This paper presents a systematic analysis of the internal dynamic forces within a V -engine/compressor with articulated power cylinders. All inertial terms are included in the formulation, which is solvable for the crankshaft torque and all reactions. After formulating the necessary description, the results are applied to two case studies involving pipeline compressor units.
