Radical Design Change
Internal Combustion Engines fired up by “ Spark Ignition or Compression Ignition” harness only about 25 to 35 % of the derived heat energy into useful work while the remaining heat energy islost invariably by ways of heat absorptions into the cylinder walls and the internals of the engine during the expansion process followed by the remaining hot gasses exitting through the exhaust port and systems into the open as exhaust gas expulsion consisting largely of water vapour and CO2.
The only other means to derive more efficiency out of the age-old IC Engine is to increase the compression ratios and come up with better knock resistant fuels to overcome present setbacks. Engineers World over are trying to achieve quick combustion that delivers more power out of the expanding hot gasses and preventing the least heat absorption into the systems before being blown away. Accepted facts of ICEs are – Invariable heat losses during burn ?
During combustion the cylinder volume is very narrow, heat losses into the piston head and cylinder head are unavoidable and play a vital role. In order to reduce the heat losses the burn time needs to be as small as possible ( This can be achieved out of high flame velocities ) This is accomplished by either increasing the :
- Laminar burning velocity
- or Turbulence intensity or Both
- Slightly richer mixtures of 13 : 1 and below
- Squish promoting in-cylinder turbulence in the charge during combustion.
Conclusions : Ideal turbulent mixture formations prior to ignition greatly support “ Quick light ups ” followed by accelerated combustion. My US Patent 6237579 has all the potency to achieve this by – ALTCBC - Accelerated Laminar Total Clean Burn Combustion out of progressive turbulence in the charge as the piston pounds the head at TDC. This form of combustion further achieves higher thermal efficiencies that deliver better – Break Specific Fuel Consumption - BSFC. Lets see if there is anything simpler than this "Groovy Design" available to make present day IC Engines better and more fuel efficient considering the costs of Crude Oils going through the roof and the future of its supplies in the years to come! Not forgetting the net resultants of " Green House Gases " exitting into the open ~ Depleting Oxygen levels permanently in the process of Combustion !Time To Think ? ~ It is getting warmer by the day ?
