Aims of a design engineer: Indicated power, Brake power, Specific fuel consumption, Exhaust emissions, Cooling of engine, Maintenance free operation etc., Task of development engineer: Reduce the cost, Improve the power output and Improve the reliability of the engine. 1/6/2015 2 Dr. M. Mohan Jagadeesh Kumar Testing of IC Engines
Image of page 2
Tests carried away by a development engineer: Fuel and air measurements, Power measurements, Emission measurements, Heat balances, Injector needle lift measurements, and Swirl pattern and photographs of burning process in combustion chamber. The dependency of nature and type of test to be conducted: Degree of development of the design, The accuracy required, and Funds available. 1/6/2015 3 Dr. M. Mohan Jagadeesh Kumar Testing of IC Engines
