    INTERNAL-COMBUSTION ENGINE INTRODUCTION Internal Combustion Engine, a heat engine in which the fuel is burned (that is, united with oxygen) within the confining space of the engine itself. This burning process releases large amounts of energy, which are transformed into work through the mechanism of the engine. This type of engine different from the steam engine, which process with an external combustion engine that fuel burned apart from the engine. The principal types of internal combustion en...
  • Larger Engines The Crankshaft

    The gasoline engine has changed the world forever. When Karl Benz improved the internal combustion engine and put it into an automobile he started something that to this day is still being improved on. The Germans are known for there fine luxury vehicles, but it's America that wants bigger and better. Americans have raced their automobiles from the time before Henry Ford rolled his first car of the assembly line. The basic principle of the gasoline engine is the fuel is mixed with air in the car...
  • Diesel And Fuel Injection Engines
    991 words
    INTERNAL-COMBUSTION ENGINE. When a fuel is burned in air, the resulting hot gas tries to expand, generating a force that can be used to move a piston in a cylinder, as in the automobile engine, or to drive the blades of a turbine. In either case, because the combustion takes place within it, the engine is called an internal-combustion engine. Modern transportation relies heavily upon internal-combustion engines. All airplanes and most automobiles, ships, and railroad locomotives are powered by t...

Aviation powerplants originated with the Wright flyer and its sm...
  • Compressed Natural Gas
    718 words
    Compressed Natural Gas or CNG is becoming and increasingly attractive fuel for many transportation uses. One reason for the increase in interest in CNG is that the emissions of a CNG vehicle are far less than that of a gas powered engine. Other factors that make the production of CNG vehicles is that the gas prices have risen in the past couple years. Availability Natural gas is, well, natural gas-the same stuff that heats your stove or your house. It is largely produced domestically in the Unit...
  • Fuel From The Gas Tank Through Lines
    972 words
    Fuel System sPT- 264 By: Bobbie Day 3/28/2005 In this report I will explain the fuel systems in an automobile. I will cover different parts and how they work. First thing to do is explain how the fuel system works. The purpose of the fuel system is to store and supply fuel to the cylinder chamber where it can be mixed with air then vaporized and burned to produce energy. The fuel, which can be either gas or diesel is stored in a fuel tank. A fuel pump draws the fuel from the gas tank through lin...
  • Internal Combustion Engine Fuel
