    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 Engines 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

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

    Reverend Robert Stirling patented an engine that produced motive power from heated air that is known today as the Stirling Engine. In general terms, the Stirling Engine is an external combustion heat engine that functions through piston motion resulting from the expansion and compression of a working gas sealed within the engine. Invention of this technology predates the gasoline and Diesel engines and significantly differs from internal combustion heat engines. It was not until April of 1945 that

  • The Road Use Internal Combustion Engines

    Currently, most vehicles on the road use internal combustion engines (ICEs). This type of engine has existed from as early as the 19th century, when Nikolaus Otto created the first 4-stroke cycle (Otto-cycle) system, which is still used in cars to this day. As of 2010, the vehicular population surpassed 1 billion (according to the research by Ward’s Auto [1]), meaning the IC engine is extremely widespread throughout the world. However, this does not mean that an IC engine is the most effective way of producing

    The traditional internal combustion engine has been the mainstream automobile power source and even after the next generation vehicle engines made an appearance. The new generation engines still have not entirely taken over its position as of yet. “One hundred years later, oil now accounts for about 95 percent of the global transportation sector fuel and 13 percent of global greenhouse gas emission. (Clements 2014)” The environmental damage from the internal combustion engine is still a major

    invention to make it bigger, smaller, more cost effective, or simply better. The internal combustion engine has been used in transportation for everyone who lives in a civilized area; whether it is a motorcycle, car, bus, airplane, etc. The most important advances in technology for these engines involve efficiency. Gas mileage, performance, and displacement are key concerns for all engineers of internal combustion engines. With the invention of the turbocharger all of these factors can be improved

    war, artifacts used in everyday living, agricultural implements, and other items. Traditionally, Gasoline engine blocks were made up of cast iron because cast iron was readily available and cheaper and has a good machinability. But as the technology advances and there is a need of improvising the basic design of an engine to improve its performance. Moreover, the overall weight of the engine increased due to complex design of the body. Therefore, in order to overcome this problems, the manufacturers
