The diesel engine is a compression ignition engine = a type of engine in which air is compressed to a pressure sufficient enough to produce a high temperature for spontaneous combustion of the fuel injected into the cylinder at the graduated rate.
(1858 – 1913) was a German inventor and mechanical engineer, famous for the invention of the Diesel engine.
Thediesel engine underwent much development and became a very important replacement for the steam piston engine in many applications. Because the diesel engine required a heavier, more robust construction than a gasoline engine, it was not widely used in aviation. The diesel engine became widespread in many other applications, however, such as stationary engines, submarines, ships, and much later, locomotives, trucks, and in modern automobiles. Diesel engines are most often found in applications where a high torque requirement and low RPM requirement exist.
TYPES OF DIESEL ENGINES
There are various types and designs of marine diesel engines, mainly regarding the following features:
Exhaust valve gear
Piston pin (Gudgeon pin)
Single-acting engineOne side of the piston and one end of the cylinder are used to develop powerDouble-acting engineBoth sides of the piston and both cylinder ends are used to develop powerOpposed-piston engineCombustion occurs in the middle of the cylinder, between two pistons travelling in opposite directions
Considering the way the piston is attached to the upper end of the connecting rod:
According to the speed: of the connecting rod:
Slow-speed engineruns below 200 revolutions per minuteMedium-speed enginebetween 200-750 rev/minHigh-speed engineabove 750 rpm
According to the direction of rotation: of the connecting rod:
Direct-reversible enginedesigned to rotate in either the clockwise and anticlockwise directionNon-reversible / Unidirectional enginenot made to run in the opposite direction
In-line engine / L-enginecylinders are placed vertically in lineb)V-engine / Vee enginecylinders are placed at angles in two separate planes or ‘banks’
In-line engine two designs:
Vee engine two designs:
Direct-coupled enginecoupled directly to the propeller shafting = direct driveGeared enginecoupled to a reduction gearing (gearbox) = indirect drive
According to the shafting:cycle of operation:
Two-stroke enginethe cycle (injection – exhaust – scavenge – compression) is completed in two strokes of the piston or one revolution of the crankshaft
Four-stroke enginethe cycle is completed in four strokes of the piston or one revolution of the crankshaft
The diesel is defined as a compression ignition engine. What does it mean?
What is a main engine and what an auxiliary?
What do the terms direct drive and indirect drive refer to?
How may engines be classed according to speed?
What are undirectional engines?
The diesel engine is a type of external combustion engine where the fuel,which contains chemical energy, is burned in a special combustion chamber.
In diesel engines combustion occurs in the cylinder either by compression or spark.
High-speed engines are direct-drive engines.
The pistons of single-acting engines have one end closed and one end open.
Diesel generators are directly reversible.
Slow-speed engines allow direct coupling to the propeller shafting.
The crosshead engine design reduces the engine height and the number of working parts.
Rudolf Diesel was burried in Pula.
