Many studies have linked the greenhouse gases produced by an automobile engine to the partial destruction of our atmosphere and to global. A heat engine is a machine, which converts heat energy into mechanical energy. case of internal combustion engine, the combustion of fuel takes place inside. We almost take our Internal Combustion Engines for granted don‟t we? All we do is download our vehicles, hop in and drive around. There is, however, a history of.

The automobile engine

Double cylinder engine: The engine which consists of two cylinders is called double cylinder engine. Multi cylinder engine: An engine which consists of more than two cylinders is called multi cylinder engine. The multi cylinder engine may have three, four, six, eight, twelve and sixteen cylinder.

Arrangement of Cylinders On the basis of arrangement of cylinders the engines classification is: i. Vertical engine: in vertical engines, the cylinders are arranged in vertical position as shown in the diagram.

Horizontal engine: In horizontal engines, the cylinders are placed horizontal position as shown in the diagram given below. Before the gas turbine engine is not become predominant, it is commonly used for aircraft engines. V-engine: In v types of engine, the cylinders are placed in two banks having some angle between them.

The angle between the two banks is keep as small as possible to prevent vibration and balancing problem.

Most mechanical devices invented during the industrial revolution were described as engines—the steam engine being a notable example. However, the original steam engines, such as those by Thomas Savery , were not mechanical engines but pumps.

In this manner, a fire engine in its original form was merely a water pump, with the engine being transported to the fire by horses.

In modern usage, the term engine typically describes devices, like steam engines and internal combustion engines, that burn or otherwise consume fuel to perform mechanical work by exerting a torque or linear force usually in the form of thrust. Devices converting heat energy into motion are commonly referred to simply as engines. Examples of engines which produce thrust include turbofans and rockets.

When the internal combustion engine was invented, the term motor was initially used to distinguish it from the steam engine—which was in wide use at the time, powering locomotives and other vehicles such as steam rollers. The term motor derives from the Latin verb moto which means to set in motion, or maintain motion.

Thus a motor is a device that imparts motion. Motor and engine are interchangeable in standard English. A heat engine may also serve as a prime mover —a component that transforms the flow or changes in pressure of a fluid into mechanical energy. Another way of looking at it is that a motor receives power from an external source, and then converts it into mechanical energy, while an engine creates power from pressure derived directly from the explosive force of combustion or other chemical reaction, or secondarily from the action of some such force on other substances such as air, water, or steam.

More complex engines using human power , animal power , water power , wind power and even steam power date back to antiquity. Human power was focused by the use of simple engines, such as the capstan , windlass or treadmill , and with ropes , pulleys , and block and tackle arrangements; this power was transmitted usually with the forces multiplied and the speed reduced.

These were used in cranes and aboard ships in Ancient Greece , as well as in mines , water pumps and siege engines in Ancient Rome. The writers of those times, including Vitruvius , Frontinus and Pliny the Elder , treat these engines as commonplace, so their invention may be more ancient. By the 1st century AD, cattle and horses were used in mills , driving machines similar to those powered by humans in earlier times.

According to Strabo , a water powered mill was built in Kaberia of the kingdom of Mithridates during the 1st century BC. Use of water wheels in mills spread throughout the Roman Empire over the next few centuries.

Initial surface roughness analysis, for example, the small proportion of the load carried by the asperities because of the non-conformal Few studies seem to have been directed to the influence nature of the camrfollower contact, it must be observed of initial surface roughness on the subsequent performance that currently the value of such analyses is limited in of automotive cams and followers.

Roylance et al. One reason undertook a study to examine wear behaviour during the for this is the use of data extrapolated beyond the film running-in period as influenced by surface topography and thickness ratio limit for which it was established. Two test apparatus were adopted, a motored Potentially of more value in the longer term, is the cylinder head and a laboratory cam and tappet machine. It was suggested that the smoothing process might not have encouraged lubricant retention in the con- tact, hence, promoting subsequent damage.

For the labora- tory apparatus, less wear was reported for smoother sur- faces and for cases where the hardness of the cam was less than that of the follower.

Different Types of Engine

Taylor w4x has reported studies using a laboratory appa- ratus to test a direct acting mechanism. The cams were steel; induction hardened to 2. Cams with different surface roughness initially were run against nominally similar followers for h at a fixed camshaft speed and tempera- ture. The data is recorded in Table 3. It can be seen that on the cam flanks, there was little change in roughness reflecting healthy oil film thickness at these sites. The cam and follower were mechanically sepa- rated over the base circle and, hence, there was no change in this region.

Over the nose region, there was evidence on the rougher cams of an improvement in surface finish reflecting removal of asperity tips and surface flattening. It will be noted that the smoother cam roughened up, and there was a tendency for the final roughness at the nose to move towards the same value irrespective of initial rough- ness.

It is worthy of note that in another series of tests the temperature of the bulk apparatus was varied up to C, but this did not appear to be an influential factor. Roughness considerations in a cam and follower w33x. Taylorr Wear — properties have been investigated.

It was suggested that the wavy cam ness. At the present surface could offer good oil retention characteristics but time with the exponential advance in computing power, that with time the release of hard wear particles due to the and the development of increasingly more powerful nu- wave peaks could be problematical.

It was proposed that a merical analysis techniques, there is rapid development of cam surface having the same roughness, but zero or re- non-smooth surface, elastohydrodynamic lubrication analy- duced waviness, would show improved performance.

This has enormous significance in the design and Waviness on automotive cams remains an issue and it is development of concentrated contacts to operate under interesting to note that analysts are now in a position to increasingly severe conditions.

The is not the case for pure sliding.

Surface texture can lead to method assumes that the hydrodynamically generated load important differences and in pure sliding it is shown that capacity due to pressures in the lubricant film balances the the best lubrication condition is produced for transverse applied load, thus precluding the possibility of instability waviness.

The definitive linking of surface texture to im- effects as inertia loading is neglected. The technique has proved machine element performance in, say, a cam and proved amenable to simple computerised analysis yielding follower, would be a powerful technique. Wear prediction It is, however, important to recall that there is a wide range of assumptions implicit in the use of the Mobility The prediction of wear in machine elements is a notori- method as it is normally applied.

Taylorr Wear — These restrictive assumptions clearly imply that any predictions can only be benchmark and point to the impor- tance of field experience being used alongside predictions in order to make sound design prognostications for im- provements.

Taylor w4x has detailed a range of research studies in which some of the assumptions detailed above have been relaxed.
