Diesel Engine

Diesel Engines Diesel engines are everywhere; they are used in all sorts of vehicle platforms. From Volkswagen Jetta’s, to big eighteen wheel tractor trailer trucks. They provide more torque then a regular gasoline engine because of the long stroke of the piston. Most diesel engines make peak torque at very low rpm. Diesel engines do not have spark plugs. They develop combustion by heating up the air going into the cylinder, while the air is heated the fuel injector sprays into the bowl of...

Diesel Engine

The Diesel Engine Diesel engines are very similar to the gasoline engine you may find in a car. They both are internal combustion engines, have a four stroke cycle, and convert chemical energy from fuel into mechanical energy. However, the manner in which the combustion stroke is attained sets these two engines apart, and although a seemingly meaningless change, a large change in efficiency results. (Diesel Engines vs. Gasoline Engines) The diesel engine was invented by Rudolf Diesel in 1892...

Diesel and Petrol Engines

Let's start with the basics. Aside from additives such as ethanol, which is made from corn, the gasoline and diesel fuel commonly used today derive from the same source--crude oil. Although they share the same parentage (just like motor oil, some plastics, and Velveeta), they have very different properties. Gasoline is often thought of as being a single chemical, but it's actually a complex mixture of hydrocarbons that generally have 4 to 12 carbon atoms in their molecules. In the case of gasoline...

Diesel and Gasoline Engines

MECHANICAL STRUCTURE Both being internal combustion type diesel and gasoline engines can be considered as similar. Simply, both engines converts chemical energy into mechanical one by burning fuel. In combustion engines the combustion (explosion of fuel) occurs at combustion chamber with , generally, help of oxidizer (air, another fluid, etc.). The output, high heat and pressure of the burning process is transfered to other components of the engines which expose pressure as a mechanical energy. Some of...

Business Statistics II

regressions and data sets do not contain the 6 passenger busses, being there are only very few and that they might skew the regression. To explain a little about maintenance on busses, a routine oil change can run anywhere between $150-$250. Diesel engines can go 6,000 to 10,000 miles between oil changes depending on idling time and driving time. If you buy a used bus, one of the first major components that may fail you is the turbocharger. Expect to pay $1,700-$2,000 for a replacement. A tire for...

Occupational Health Threats Facing Mine Workers

working in rock drilling and blasting, diesel engines and heavy trucks undergo occupational hearing loss due to neural-sensory deafness. Nose levels ranging between 115-122Db are normally recorded in drilling machines and these nose level can cause rapture on the tympanic membrane which may further cause hemorrhage into the inner or middle ear. Higher temperatures The source of heat in mines includes terrestrial heat, machinery and man. The heat produce by diesel locomotives such as the Terex Machines...

Toyota Background

will be sold. In Europe, this local manufacturing policy was launched in 1989 with the founding of Toyota Motor Manufacturing UK, just ahead of the opening of Toyota's first European production centres: a car plant at Burnaston, near Derby, and an engine factory at Deeside, in North Wales. The level of UK production has made Toyota a key player in the nation's manufacturing industry. With more than 75 per cent of its UK output destined for export, Toyota also makes a valuable contribution to the national...
