Abstract: This research paper tends to have an insight into the dynamics of cam and tappet of diesel engine which is supposed to work continuously for a longer period under huge variable loads to operate the valves of an internal combustion engine. The dynamics of valve gear train is so elemental in the due functioning of an engine. In this research, the analysis of five-order polynomial cam has been done to find the profile of displacement, velocity, acceleration and jerk for the suitability of diesel engines. The MATLAB software has been used as the vital aid in this analysis. This insight would sure be helpful in improving the mechanism of cam profile generation leading to betterment of camshaft design so as to increase the overall efficiency of the engine.
