  • Technical Aspects: Engine Classification

    Published On : April 05, 2016 03:27 PM By Sahib Chandan

    Engines are classified under different categories based on number of strokes, number of cylinders, orientation of cylinders, type of ignition, type of fuel injection etc. Various types of engine and their technical aspects are discussed below:

  • Technical Aspects: Engine & Its Components

    Published On : April 05, 2016 02:43 PM By Sahib Chandan

    Engine creates continuous power and delivers it to the vehicle so that it can propel it forward. Internal Combustion (IC) Engines are used in vehicles, that burn fuel within engine cylinder, unlike external combustion engines that are provided with a separate combustion source. IC Engines are more c...

  • Technical Aspects: Engine Cooling System (Indirect Liquid Cooling)

    Published On : March 18, 2016 12:34 PM By Sahib Chandan

    Indirect engine cooling system doesn’t allow air to directly contact with the surface of engine. It indirectly cools down the engine and its components with the help of a coolant circulating in coolant jackets around the cylinder block and the cylinder head. While circulating around cylinders, coola...

  • Technical Aspects: Engine Cooling System (Direct Air Cooling)

    Published On : March 18, 2016 12:22 PM By Sahib Chandan

    The temperature developed within the cylinder of engine during the combustion of fuel is very high (about 2000 to 2500° C). A large amount of heat is absorbed by cylinder walls and other components, but if it is not not dissipated, the surfaces of the combustion chamber will be very hot resulting in...

  • Technical Aspects: Muffler/Silencer

    Published On : March 09, 2016 11:06 AM By Sahib Chandan

    Mufflers are widely deployed to dampen the noise coming out of an engine body before exhaust gets eliminated through tail pipe. Exhaust gases enter into muffler after removal of pollutant elements in catalytic converter. It reduces the noise to the desired level so that vehicle do not violate noise ...

  • Technical Aspects: Catalytic Converter

    Published On : March 08, 2016 06:50 PM By Sahib Chandan

    Catalytic converter converts the pollutant gases present in the engine exhaust into non pollutant gases through chemical reaction. Exhaust from engine is made to pass through a catalytic converter. It works efficiently between 650 and 800 degree Celsius. If the temperature is beyond 1000 degree Cels...

  • Technology Decoded: Hydraulic Brake System

    Published On : March 01, 2016 04:24 PM By Sahib Chandan

    In hydraulic brake system, operating force applied to the brake pedal is delivered to the hydraulic unit which generates hydraulic pressure (using the Pascal’s law) for braking. Braking force is delivered to each wheel equally which leads to equal braking force among wheels and the system works fine...

  • Technology Decoded: Disc Brake

    Published On : February 26, 2016 07:09 PM By Sahib Chandan

    Disc brakes are widely used in vehicles due to their efficient braking mechanism. These brakes convert the hydraulic pressure into a frictional clamping force against the rotating disc which is installed at the hub of the wheel. These brakes generally have a greater braking power impact as compared ...
