  • Four Stroke Otto Cycle Engines
    3,287 words
    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...

    Potential Environmental and Social impact of ELECTRIC CARS A wise person once said that: The only thing that we know about the future is its uncertainty. This uncertainty opens the world of opportunity to us, allowing progress to pave the road to tomorrow. Over the past fifty years, the automobile has become our primary way of transportation and not only for leisure, but a necessity for most people. With the convenience and the increasing number of cars each year, however, come serious consequen...
  • 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...

    Internal Combustion Engines for the Future Horst Schulte, Martin Wirth Ford Motor CompanyABSTRACTFuture internal combustion engines for light duty applications will have to cope with a very complex set of customer, legal and business requirements. Customers are expecting further improvements in durability, reliability, drivability, fuel economy, and cost of ownership. Legal requirements are focused on significant emission and fuel consumption reductions. Additional manufacturing cost reductions ...
  • Type Of Internal Combustion Engine
    1,488 words
    Internal Combustion Engines An internal-combustion engine is a heat engine that burns fuel and air inside a combustion chamber located within the engine proper. Simply stated, a heat engine is an engine that converts heat energy to mechanical energy. The internal- combustion engine should be distinguished from the external-combustion engine, for example, the steam engine and the Stirling engine, which burns fuel outside the prime mover, that is, the device that actually produces mechanical motio...
  • Motor Car Engines
    2,051 words
    History of Cars By Kenny Carroll Motor car, road vehicle which first appeared in the 19th Century. The steam propelled the first cars, but such vehicles were not a success and the age of the motor car really dates from the introduction of the petrol-driven horseless carriages of Gottfried Daimler and Karl Benz (1885-86). The internal combustion engine for these cars had been developed earlier by several engineers, most notably by the German, Nickolas Otto, in 1876. The main components of a motor...
  • Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engine
    958 words
    Engine at Work Have you ever wondered how a car's engine works Most of today's automobile engines run on gasoline, which is also known as an internal combustion engine. Many factors are involved in getting an engine to run properly spark plug, valves, piston, piston rings, combustion chamber, connecting rod, crankshaft, and oil sump. A car's engine can be one of the most complicated mechanisms a person can own and yet it's one of the easiest to use (Romans 104). As Fullerton quoted, The purpose ...
  • Internal Combustion Engine Fuel
    864 words
    The internal combustion engine has become an integral part of the lives of every person on earth. They " re the devices that have allowed us to cross continents reliably, generate electricity in remote areas and fly around the world in a matter of hours. All these engines do is burn fuel and convert its energy into work. It's these heat engines that have really changed the world. However the convenience they bring has come at a great cost. The major problem with the internal combustion engine is...
  • Better Internal Combustion Engine

    Automotive History Why is it called an automobile Or now a car Why isn't it called anything else Oliver Evens applied for a U.S. patent in Philadelphia in 1792 on a steam land carriage, which he called the "oruktor amphibolous". We could of been stuck with that name if it wasn't for more reasonable people working on the same concept. George B. Selden, an attorney in Rochester, New York, applied for a patent for a " road machine" and got it. He was the first to get the patent. Shocking Developmen...
  • Two Piston Type Stirling Engine
    1,404 words
    The Stirling Engine Robert Stirling invented the Stirling engine in 1816. At the time he was a Scottish minister. Stirling engines were the safest engines made during that time period that would not explode like a steam engine could. The Stirling engine would not explode because the pressures could not be elevated to that to such a high level. The machine simply stopped when the heater section failed from thermal stress or imperfections in the material or manufacturing process. So from that day ...
  • Internal Combustion Engine
    1,338 words
    Before the 1800's most people lived on farms and their job was working on their farms. Most people didn't leave their farms because they had no real means of transportation. After the 1800's the automobile was invented and people started leaving in cities. People also began traveling and taking more vacations since they could get around easier. The automobile has increased the amount of jobs and changed the life style of people in the 20th century. The internal combustion engine is any group of ...
  • Gas Turbine Engine
    4,207 words
    The idea of utilizing the physical principle of reaction on a large scale by means of rockets is usually attributed to China in the thirteenth century. Not until after the Second World War, however, did rocket technology mature to a state which made the idea of space travel a practical possibility, owing largely to a giant step forward during the war itself. Although earliest models of the steam turbine date back as early as the 17th century, practical applications of the turbine engine had to w...

    All Things Need To Move Whether Human sAll Things Need To Move Whether Humans Or Machines All humans and machines need to move. They need something to make them move like an engine. For humans, the engine for humans is the heart. The heart connects to other parts of the body to animate it. The engine in machines connects to other parts of the car, motorcycle, washing machine to make it move. There are many different kinds of engines. There are steam engines, turbine engines, and internal combust...
