Internal Combustion Engine

The invention of the internal combustion engine is most probably the result of the developments of several individuals. Around 1780, Dutch scientist Christiaan Huygens built an engine that used gunpowder as a fuel, but this engine was far too dangerous to be practical. His assistant, Denis Papin, also experimented with developing an internal combustion engine, building a simple steam-powered device around 1790. Again, this engine was not practical, and not until the early nineteenth century did the...

Internal Combustion Engines

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...

Internal Combustion Engine vs External Combustion Engine

Report In the car (Internal Combustion Engine) Name: Chia Wei Qian ID: 1101C12664 Period 4 Date: 14 May 2012 Lecturer: Mr. Jaroslaw Cebrowski Introduction Car engine is amazing machine that convert the heat energy to mechanical energy to let the car move. As we know the modern car engine is works in the internal combustion so it is call internal combustion engines. But for the older technology, they used External Combustion Engines. It is far lower efficiency...

The Process of an Internal Combustion Engine

Matt Bagley English 110 Process Essay Process of a 4-stroke Internal Combustion Engine A common phrase that is heard whilst growing up is "curiosity killed the cat". This phrase might be true but; "ingenuity brought the cat back". Having a mindset in which giving up is never an option has plagued most inventors of the modern day, especially a high school drop out named Nikolaus August Otto, born in 1832. Otto was responsible for the development and improvement of the 4-stroke motor that...

Components of Internal Combustion Engine

COMPONENTS OF INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE Even though reciprocating internal combustion engines look quite sim¬ple, they are highly complex machines. There are hundreds of compo¬nents which have to perform their functions satisfactorily to produce out¬put power. The main components of the IC engine and their functions are described below. • Cylinder Block: The cylinder block is the main supporting structure for the various components. The cylinder of a multi-cylinder engine is cast as a single...

Automotive engine Engines are desinged to be two strokes or four strokes of a piston that moves up and down in a cylinder. Generally, the automotive engine uses four strokes to convert chemical energy to mechanical energy through combustion of gasoline or similar hydrocarbon fuel. The heat produced is converted into mechanical work by pushing the piston down in the cylinder. A connecting rod attached to the piston transfers this energy to a rotating crankshaft Engines having from 1...

6 Stroke Petrol Engine

SIX-STROKE ENGINE   INTRODUCTION: The majority of the actual internal combustion engines, operating on different cycles have one common feature, combustion occurring in the cylinder after each compression, resulting in gas expansion that acts directly on the piston (work) and limited to 180 degrees of crankshaft angle. According to its mechanical design, the six-stroke engine with external and internal combustion and double flow is similar to the actual internal reciprocating combustion engine. However...
