Climate Control, 2018

2018-04-03
Climate control is a defining vehicle attribute and is associated with brand image. Thermal performance is critical to customer satisfaction. The primary objective is to deliver occupant safety and thermal comfort at minimum energy consumption, yet the system has strong design interaction with other vehicle systems. Noise, Air Quality, and Energy ace are just a few of the recent advances.

Neural Network-based Optimal Control for Advanced Vehicular Thermal Management Systems

2011-12-05
Advanced vehicular thermal management system can improve engine performance, minimize fuel consumption, and reduce emissions by harmoniously operating computer-controlled servomotor components. In this paper, a neural network-based optimal control strategy is proposed to regulate the engine temperature through the advanced cooling system. Presenter Asma Al Tamimi, Hashemite University

Development of High-Efficiency Rotary Engines

2012-05-10
Combustion engines are typically only 20-30% efficient at part-load operating conditions, resulting in poor fuel economy on average. To address this, LiquidPiston has developed an improved thermodynamics cycle, called the High-Efficiency Hybrid Cycle (HEHC), which optimizes each process (stroke) of the engine operation, with the aim of maximizing fuel efficiency. The cycle consists of: 1) a high compression ratio; 2) constant-volume combustion, and 3) over-expansion. At a modest compression ratio of 18:1, this cycle offers an ideal thermodynamic efficiency of 74%. To embody the HEHC cycle, LiquidPiston has developed two very different rotary engine architectures ? called the ?M? and ?X? engines. These rotary engine architectures offer flexibility in executing the thermodynamics cycle, and also result in a very compact package. In this talk, I will present recent results in the development of the LiquidPiston engines. The company is currently testing 20 and 40 HP versions of the ?M?

Modernizing the Opposed-Piston Engine for Efficient, Clean Transportation

2012-05-10
Historically, the opposed-piston, two-stroke (OP2S) diesel engine set combined records for fuel efficiency and power density that have yet to be met by any other engine type. However, with modern emissions standards, wide-spread development of this engine for on-highway use stopped. At Achates Power, state-of-the-art analytical tools and engineering methods have produced an OP2S engine that, when compared to a leading medium-duty engine, has demonstrated a 21% fuel efficiency gain and engine-out emissions levels meeting U.S. EPA10 with conventional after-treatment. Among the presentation topics covered are thermodynamic efficiency, demonstrated engine results, cost and weight advantages, and overcoming two-stroke engine challenges.

Pistons and Oil-Trapping Rings for Maintaining an Oil Seal

1928-01-01
280054
PROVISION is made, in the piston and rings described by the author, for an adequate flow of heat from all parts of the piston-head to the cylinder-wall by means of adequate cross-section of aluminum alloy in the head and a tongue-and-groove type of piston-ring structure which provides a greater amount of surface than is usual for heat transfer. A labyrinth oil-seal is provided which aids heat transference and prevents leakage past the piston-rings, and the heat transfer is said to be such that the heat does not destroy the oil seal between the piston and the ring. Charts are included that show the effects in reduced temperatures, oil consumption and gas leakage with the construction described. Attention is given also to a skirt construction most suitable to use with the piston-head and rings described.

Engine Cooling

1932-01-01
320063
FROM 25 to 35 per cent of the heat energy of the fuel inducted into the cylinders of an internal-combustion engine must be eliminated by the cooling system. As this waste requires the expenditure of energy, the devising of an efficient cooling system is imperative. The author, who is a leading American authority on engine problems, discusses the theory of liquid-cooling, gives heat-transfer and temperature-balance equations that must be satisfied and points out the three interrelated variable factors that must be incorporated in their most economical relation. The cooling system must be studied as a whole, rather than from the standpoint of any particular unit. Some commonly held beliefs regarding fans, fuel-pumps and oil-temperature control are controverted. Five elements necessary for an efficient cooling system are enumerated.

Fundamentals of Automotive Lubrication

1932-01-01
320058
SATISFACTORY performance of a lubricant depends upon characteristics of the lubricant, operating conditions and design of the device in which the lubricant is used. Applied lubrication requires a study of the relation among these factors in their effect upon performance. The authors treat journal bearings, ball and roller bearings and gears. Equations are given for journal bearings operating under various conditions of design, lubrication, friction and heat dissipation. The authors conclude that neither ZN/P nor PV alone is adequate as a measure of the power dissipated by a bearing, a composite relation involving both terms being required over a large part of the operating range. They show that each bearing has a minimum value of ZN/P below which it may get into the unstable region of thin-film lubrication and fail.

THE HOT-SPOT METHOD OF HEAVY-FUEL PREPARATION

1922-01-01
220034
The development of intake-manifolds in the past has been confined mainly to modifications of constructional details. Believing that the increased use of automotive equipment will lead to a demand for fuel that will result in the higher cost and lower quality of the fuel, and being convinced that the sole requirement of satisfactory operation with kerosene and mixtures of the heavier oils with alcohol and benzol is the proper preparation of the fuel in the manifold, the authors have investigated the various methods of heat application in the endeavor to produce the minimum temperature necessary for a dry mixture. Finding that this minimum temperature varied with the method of application of the heat, an analysis was made of the available methods on a functional rather than a structural basis.
