Engines


                   Components of an internal combustion engine

Internal combustion engines or IC engines are the prime movers which convert the chemical energy of fuels into mechanical energy. They are given the name 'internal combustion engines' because their combustion chamber is their integral part. Unlike the external combustion engines, whose combustion chamber lies away from Read more »

                                    



Classification Of Engines

Engine is the most important component of a vehicle. It is known as the powerhouse of the automobile. It converts the chemical energy of the fuel into mechanical energy, which propels the vehicle. Most of the vehicles today are fitted with  internal combustion engines.  The engines are classified in to various types based on certain Read more »

                                    



Engine sensors

The research and development in sensor technologies is also influencing the way engines were working conventionally. The engine sensors are replacing the complex and heavy mechanical parts along with adding intelligence to the system. With these technologies the mileage and efficiency of Read more »

                                    



Engine colling system

The engines generate energy by burning the fuel inside their combustion chamber. This is done by creating small blasts in the cylinder.  You might get surprised to know that, the temperature inside the combustion chamber may even reach up to 2500 degree Celsius. This massive temperature is capable enough of melting down the engine components Read more »

                                    


Engine lubrication system

Engines have very large number of moving components. These components move relative to each other and bear huge amount of friction. This friction generates heat and is responsible for wear and tear of the Engine Components. In many cases, the wear and tear may get so severe that it starts affecting the engine performance. Also, the heat generated due to friction may get such higher Read more »

                                    



Engine oil

All engines require some form of lubrication and this is provided by the Engine Lubrication System. Engine oil is the main component of this  system. The Engine Lubrication System circulates the Engine Oil through out the Engine to provide lubrication to all the components. This oil is required to carry out numerous tasks when the engine is in operation, the primary function being lubrication all the components. It  reduces friction and prevents metal to metal contact Read more »

                                    



Unlease the power with nitrous
Nitrous or nitrogen oxide is generally  known as laughing gas. It can make you giggle if released in air. But it can do so in another way also. Just release it in your vehicle's engine, and you will get goosebumps with the power boost in the engine. If you are a video game lover, you would be aware of the need and importance of Nitrous to win a race. Some of you might even have seen the cars Read more »

                                    



Vertical vs Horizontal Engine

Most of you would have seen vertical and horizontal engines on bikes. Many among you would have wondered about the reason behind  a particular orientation. People generally have misconception about the topic. With this post we will compare both types of engines depending upon different parameters Read more »

                                    


Bore and stroke ratio

If you are an automobile enthusiast you must be knowing about bore and stroke. In this post we will try to explore some lesser known facts about these two important parameters Read more »
