Basics of IC Engine


  • Able to understand math and science basics


I C Engine means Internal Combustion Engine. Internal Combustion Engine means Engine in which combustion takes place inside the engine cylinder.

I C Engine can be classified as below

1. On the basis of Fuel used : Petrol Engine and Diesel Engine

2. On the basis of strokes of cycle : 2 stroke and 4 stroke

3. On the basis of combustion cycle : Otto Cycle and Diesel Cycle

4. On the basis of motion : Reciprocating and Rotary Engine

Mostly reciprocating I C Engine is used in all applications like Automobile, Power Generation, Locomotive etc

In this course reciprocating I C engine is discuses in details

In "Engine Terminology" video all terms related to I C Engine like cylinder bore, stroke, TDC, BDC, piston displacement etc are explained in detail.

In "working of 2 stroke engine" construction, working, advantage and disadvantages of 2 stroke engine is explained in detail.

In "working of 4 stroke engine" construction, working, advantage and disadvantages of 4 stroke engine is explained in detail.

In "power and efficiency of engine" video discussed indicated power, break power, frictional power, mechanical efficiency and related efficiencies in detail with its formula..

In "heat balance sheet and its calculations video discussed heat balance sheet in detail and its calculations with formula.

In "numerical on HBS" video one numerical on heat balance sheet is solved in detail.
