design of the timing drive assembly can not only rotate the camshafts, but also required to control the opening and closing of the valves, and the movement of the pistons. For the international combustion engine, there are two main solutions: teethed belt and chain.
The crucial function of the timing drive system is to provide drive to the engine’s camshaft(s) and a constant timing relationship to the crankshaft in order to provide the correct valve opening and closing timing required for the engine 's thermodynamic cycle. 
The timing relationship has to be maintained within tolerances over the engine lifetime. Failure…
Hadley v. Baxendale is a case wherein Hadley, the plaintiff ,was a milling company who had suffered a shut down in their operations due to a crank shaft they needed for an extremely necessary part on their stem engine broke. The company sought out assistance from Baxendale, the defendant in this case. Baxendale was hired by Hadley to transport the broken crank shaft to an engineering company to have a new part made to the exact specifications needed for that particular part. Baxendale went into…
Advantages include smoothness, balance, bulky crankshaft, decreased length. Due to these characteristics the car length is considerably small than other engines giving more passenger room. This kind of engine gives high performance. In racing, lower ground clearance increases the car 's handling capacity. Strong engine with built in rigidity is an excellent choice for Motorsport applications. Torsional vibration avoidance, produces a smooth and refined drive in V…
A NASCAR car has 8 cylinders just like a normal car and in the each cylinder is a space where piston movement occurs. In an article written by Brian Rohrig he writes “The faster the pistons move up and down, the faster the crankshaft rotates. And the faster the crankshaft rotates, the faster your car goes.” The crankshaft allows the tires of the car to spin, so if the pistons are moving faster the crankshaft operates more effectively and so does the car. The piston movement is the most important…
torque and power at high engine speed. Superchargers improves power at lower speed. And variable geometry turbochargers improves the engine’s performance.
So, the pistons of the diesel have to do more work than in order to compress more air than petrol engine. So the pistons stokes are longer in the diesel engine than in petrol engine. And longer piston stokes means diameter of crankshaft is large. Assuming that the force coming from both diesel and petrol engine is equal, then the diesel…

Typically the people who are caught up in corporate violence are looking to maximize the profit that the company is bringing in (The-Crankshaft Publishing, 2014). On the opposite end there are the victims of corporate violence. The victims are not normally aware of the crimes that are happening to them because they will generally trust the companies that they use or buy from. These victims are not targeted by the corporations but still become victims unintentionally (The-Crankshaft Publishing,…
Types of reciprocating engines:
In line engines: This type of engines have cylinder lined up in a row. Normally these engines have even number of cylinders. Its advantages include low frontal area which minimizes drag. Other advantages are improved visibility and lower center gravity. Main disadvantage is poor power to weight ratio. These engines have become…
The Duke Axial Engine is a light weight, internal combustion, valve less engine. Suitable for Marine vehicles either inboard or outboard, Light Aircrafts, and or Generator/Utility and Military. The concept of this engine is fairly new. It began in New Zeeland’s Duke Engine’s, and is already on its way to being a more efficient engine. The information provided throughout will help gain a better concept of the engine and how it will be an asset to the automotive industry.
The engine is a four…
