C. engines) are those engines in which the combustion of fuel takes place inside the engine cylinder. The I.C. engines use either petrol or diesel as their fuel. In petrol engines (also called spark ignition engines or S.I engines ), the correct proportion of air and petrol is mixed in the carburettor and fed to engine cylinder where it is ignited by means of a spark produced at the spark plug. In diesel engines (also called compression ignition engines or C.I engines ), only air is supplied to the engine cylinder during suction stroke and it is compressed to a very high pressure, thereby raising its temperature from 600°C to 1000°C. The desired quantity of fuel (diesel) is now injected into the engine cylinder in the form of a very fine spray and gets ignited when comes in contact with the hot air. The operating cycle of an I.C. engine may be completed either by the two strokes or four strokes of the

1126 n A Textbook of Machine Design piston. Thus, an engine which requires two strokes of the piston or one complete revolution of the crankshaft to complete the cycle, is known as two stroke engine. An engine which requires four strokes of the piston or two complete revolutions of the crankshaft to complete the cycle, is known as four stroke engine. The two stroke petrol engines are generally employed in very light vehicles such as scooters, motor cycles and three wheelers. The two stroke diesel engines are generally employed in marine propulsion. The four stroke petrol engines are generally employed in light vehicles such as cars, jeeps and also in aeroplanes. The four stroke diesel engines are generally employed in heavy duty vehicles such as buses, trucks, tractors, diesel locomotive and in the earth moving machinery. 32.2 Principal Parts of an Engine Principal Parts of an Engine The principal parts of an I.C engine, as shown in Fig. 32.1 are as follows : 1. Cylinder and cylinder liner, 2. Piston, piston rings and piston pin or gudgeon pin, 3. Connecting rod with small and big end bearing, 4. Crank, crankshaft and crank pin, and 5. Valve gear mechanism.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
