Engine efficiency of thermal engines is the relationship between the total energy contained in the fuel , and the amount of energy used to perform useful work. There are two classifications of thermal engines-. Each of these engines has thermal efficiency characteristics that are unique to it. Engine efficiency, transmission design, and tire design all contribute to a vehicle's fuel efficiency. The efficiency of an engine is defined as ratio of the useful work done to the heat provided. Please note that the term work done relates to the power delivered at the clutch or at the driveshaft. This means the friction and other losses are subtracted from the work done by thermodynamic expansion.
Petrol engine British English or gasoline engine American English is an internal combustion engine with spark-ignition , designed to run on petrol gasoline and similar volatile fuels. In most petrol engines, the fuel and air are usually pre-mixed before compression although some modern petrol engines now use cylinder- direct petrol injection. The process differs from a diesel engine in the method of mixing the fuel and air, and in using spark plugs to initiate the combustion process. In a diesel engine, only air is compressed and therefore heated , and the fuel is injected into very hot air at the end of the compression stroke , and self-ignites. With both air and fuel in a closed cylinder, compressing the mixture too much poses the danger of auto-ignition — or behaving like a compression-ignition engine. Because of the difference in burn rates between the two different fuels, petrol engines are mechanically designed with different timing than diesels, so to auto-ignite a petrol engine causes the expansion of gas inside the cylinder to reach its greatest point before the cylinder has reached the top dead center TDC position. Spark plugs are typically set statically or at idle at a minimum of 10 degrees or so of crankshaft rotation before the piston reaches TDC, but at much higher values at higher engine speeds to allow time for the fuel-air charge to substantially complete combustion before too much expansion has occurred - gas expansion occurring with the piston moving down in the power stroke.
Diesel engine , any internal-combustion engine in which air is compressed to a sufficiently high temperature to ignite diesel fuel injected into the cylinder , where combustion and expansion actuate a piston. It converts the chemical energy stored in the fuel into mechanical energy , which can be used to power freight trucks, large tractors, locomotives, and marine vessels. A limited number of automobiles also are diesel-powered, as are some electric-power generator sets. The diesel engine is an intermittent-combustion piston-cylinder device. It operates on either a two-stroke or four-stroke cycle see figure ; however, unlike the spark-ignition gasoline engine , the diesel engine induces only air into the combustion chamber on its intake stroke.
Internal combustion engines provide outstanding drivability and durability, with more than million highway transportation vehicles in the United States relying on them. Along with gasoline or diesel, they can also utilize renewable or alternative fuels e. Combustion, also known as burning, is the basic chemical process of releasing energy from a fuel and air mixture. In an internal combustion engine ICE , the ignition and combustion of the fuel occurs within the engine itself. The engine then partially converts the energy from the combustion to work.
The internal combustion engine was invented around by various scientists and engineers worldwide. Since then the engines have gone through many modifications and improvements. Today, different applications of engines form a significant technological importance in our everyday lives, leading to the evolution of our modern civilization. The invention of diesel and gasoline engines has definitel The invention of diesel and gasoline engines has definitely changed our lifestyles as well as shaped our priorities.
A four-stroke also four-cycle engine is an internal combustion IC engine in which the piston completes four separate strokes while turning the crankshaft. A stroke refers to the full travel of the piston along the cylinder, in either direction. The four separate strokes are termed:. Nicolaus August Otto was a traveling salesman for a grocery concern. In his travels, he encountered the internal combustion engine built in Paris by Belgian expatriate Jean Joseph Etienne Lenoir. The Lenoir engine ran on illuminating gas made from coal, which had been developed in Paris by Philip Lebon. In testing a replica of the Lenoir engine in , Otto became aware of the effects of compression on the fuel charge.
The diesel engine , named after Rudolf Diesel , is an internal combustion engine in which ignition of the fuel is caused by the elevated temperature of the air in the cylinder due to the mechanical compression; thus, the diesel engine is a so-called compression-ignition engine CI engine. This contrasts with engines using spark plug -ignition of the air-fuel mixture, such as a petrol engine gasoline engine or a gas engine using a gaseous fuel like natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas. Diesel engines work by compressing only the air. This increases the air temperature inside the cylinder to such a high degree that atomised diesel fuel injected into the combustion chamber ignites spontaneously.
Various scientists and engineers contributed to the development of internal combustion engines. In , John Barber developed a turbine. In Thomas Mead patented a gas engine. Also in Robert Street patented an internal-combustion engine, which was also the first to use the liquid fuel petroleum and built an engine around that time.
It has neither carburettor nor ignition system. The fuel is injected in the form of a very fine spray, by means of a nozzle, into the combustion chamber. There it is ignited by the heat of compressed air which the chamber has been charged with. The diesel engine operates within a fixed sequence of events, which may be achieved either in four or two strokes. The low-speed i.
An internal combustion engine ICE is a heat engine in which the combustion of a fuel occurs with an oxidizer usually air in a combustion chamber that is an integral part of the working fluid flow circuit.
Рванувшись вниз за своей жертвой, он продолжал держаться вплотную к внешней стене, что позволило бы ему стрелять под наибольшим углом. Но всякий раз, когда перед ним открывался очередной виток спирали, Беккер оставался вне поля зрения и создавалось впечатление, что тот постоянно находится впереди на сто восемьдесят градусов. Беккер держался центра башни, срезая углы и одним прыжком преодолевая сразу несколько ступенек, Халохот неуклонно двигался за. Еще несколько секунд - и все решит один-единственный выстрел. Даже если Беккер успеет спуститься вниз, ему все равно некуда бежать: Халохот выстрелит ему в спину, когда он будет пересекать Апельсиновый сад. Халохот переместился ближе к центру, чтобы двигаться быстрее, чувствуя, что уже настигает жертву: всякий раз, пробегая мимо очередного проема, он видел ее тень. Вниз.
Росио подняла брови. - Это очень большие деньги.
Беккер вошел в телефонную будку и начал набирать номер Стратмора. Не успел он набрать международный код, как в трубке раздался записанный на пленку голос: Todos los circuitos estan ocupados - Пожалуйста, положите трубку и перезвоните позднее. Беккер нахмурился и положил трубку на рычаг.
Соши Кута, тонкая как проволока, весила не больше сорока килограммов. Она была его помощницей, прекрасным техником лаборатории систем безопасности, выпускницей Массачусетс кого технологического института. Она часто работала с ним допоздна и, единственная из всех сотрудников, нисколько его не боялась.
Стратмор закрыл дверцу холодильника и без тени волнения взглянул на Чатрукьяна. - Ты имеешь в виду работающий монитор. Чатрукьян растерялся. - Так вы обратили внимание. - Конечно.
