Diesel Supercharging - Its Effect on Design and Performance 380142
METHODS of increasing engine output are discussed, and supercharging is said to involve few difficulties. The location of the blower drive as it affects frequency and gear loading is considered. Bearing-load diagrams are analyzed for a high-speed and a low-speed engine.
Tests indicate a negligible increase in piston temperatures. Fuel-consumption curves show fuel economy comparable with that of the normal engine.
