In the present work, dynamic analysis is carried out on an engine shaft for a single cylinder four stroke engine. The shafts are modeled using finite element analysis and the intensity of stress magnitude is determined. It is shown in the paper that the stress variation is high at some critical points. The dynamic analysis is carried out analytically at different engine speeds and is verified by simulation software. As a result, the critical engine speed and critical region on the shafts are obtained.
