In automobile engineering, Petrol Engine uses electric spark ignition to ignite the fuel mixture. The compressed air-petrol mixture in a petrol engine must be fired at the correct instant. So, that the resulting rise in pressure acts on the piston when it is at top dead center. A high voltage is required to jump the
A spark plug is used to ignite the mixture of air-petrol inside the cylinder. A spark plug which is screwed into the cylinder head is usually designed to withstand a pressure of 35 kg/cm². Spark plug normally operates under 10000 to 30000 volts. To withstand such a high pressure and voltage, a superior quality spark plug
Cooling is a necessary requirement of an I.C. Engine. In Automobile engineering, to get the work done from an internal combustion engine, we have to burn air-fuel mixture inside the cylinder. The combustion of air-fuel mixture generates 2500 degree centigrade temperature in the engine cylinder. Cooling will remove the generated heat. To withstand such a high
Defects in engine cooling system are a common problem. The heat is generated in the engine due to combustion of air-fuel mixture that is why the Necessity of Cooling in Internal Combustion Engine is required in Automobile engineering. Hence this is done by air or water. Each cooling system has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Air Cooling is the simplest method to cool down the engine. When the combustion of fuel takes place inside the cylinder of an internal combustion engine, a very high temperature is developed. It is, therefore necessary to extract some of the heat from cylinder to atmosphere. It will avoid damage to the cylinder and piston.
Water Cooling is the proven method of engine cooling. To pass some of the heat generated due to combustion in the cylinder of an internal combustion engine, air-cooling or water-cooling methods are used in automobile engineering. In water cooling method, the advantage of superior convective and conductive properties of water is used. Water is circulated
