EXERCISE 2

SINGLE CYLINDER INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES

Introduction

Combustion, torque, power, emissions and fuel consumption are very important
parameters for the efficiency and performance of the engines, and all of them are directly
influenced by the geometry of the combustion chamber (Rajamani et al., 2012). Heisler says that
an effective combustion chamber has to create conditions for the air-flow mixture that optimizes
the combustion flame, making it fast and uniform, and facilitate the burned gases expulsion
(Jaichandar & Annamalai 2012). Single cylinder engine modelling is a necessary aspect of
combustion research. In particular, simulating heat release connects variable combustion
behaviour to fuel properties through the 1st Law of Thermodynamics (Mattson et al., 2016). The
thermodynamic modelling of single cylinder combustion processes helps to characterize fuel
behaviour. The standard single cylinder model uses the calculation of the engine-out rate of heat
release (RHR). One of the primary properties dining IC engine combustion behaviour is fuel
viscosity (Dec, 1997). The hydrogen addition to gaseous or liquid fuels offers good end energy
performances as it was well proven heavily researched applications for single cylinder pressure
application (Bruneaux, 2001).

Objectives

At the end of this exercise, the student must be able to:

 Familiarize the different parts and subsystem of 4-stroke single cylinder internal
combustion engine (Kubota RK80-1S diesel engine and Kenbo KB6.5M gasoline
engine)
 compare diesel and gasoline engine

Methodology

In this laboratory exercise, the students prepared the materials to disassemble the two
sample of 4-stroke single cylinder internal combustion engine (Kubota RK80-1S diesel engine
and Kenbo KB6.5M gasoline engine). The steps performed by the students to finish the
laboratory exercise are as follows:

1. Listed all the information printed and encrypted at the engine.


2. Measured length, width, and height of the engine.
3. Disassembled the engine.
4. Took pictures in every part of the engine.
5. Observed distinguished characteristic in the engine.
6. Measured the weight of available parts that could measure by the electric weighing scale.
7. Assemble the engine.
8. Lastly, used internet to find the manufacturer’s specification.

Table1 presents the general information of 4-stroke single cylinder internal combustion
engine (Kubota RK80-1S diesel engine) and Table2 presents the general information of gasoline
engine from the manufacturer’s specification and the data gathered present in actual engine. the
collected data measurements were not exactly the same as states by the manufacturer, since the
student used different measuring materials. And some verification was met.

Table3. Engine External Parts and Functions

Table3 presents the major components of a engine. Understanding the major parts and
function and how they work together is necessary (DOE-HDBK, n.d.)

Part Function
1. Tank A large receptacle or storage chamber,
especially for liquid or gas
2. Carburettor A device in an internal combustion engine for
mixing air with a fine spray of liquid fuel
3. Sparkplug A device for firing the explode mixture in an
internal combustion engine
4. Hand cranked Operate a device by turning a crank by hand
5. Muffler A wrap or scarf worn around the neck and face
for warmth
6. Air cleaner Another term for air filter
7. Shaft A long, narrow part or section forming the
handle of a tool or club, the body of a spear or
arrow, or a similar implement

Table4. Comparison of Diesel and Gasoline Engines

Table4 presents the comparison between both diesel and gasoline engine. Diesel engine
has so many advantages and has a highest efficiency but it cost a big amount of money, while
gasoline engine in the other hand is economical.

Conclusion

The student accomplished the objectives, to familiarize the different parts and subsystem
of 4-stroke single cylinder internal combustion engine (Kubota RK80-1S diesel engine and
Kenbo KB6.5M gasoline engine) for the student to have a basic knowledge in naming specific
parts for future work at farm machineries. And know the comparison of the two different engines
to know what is the most efficient. In Table4 sees that Diesel engine are more efficient than
gasoline fuelled engine but gasoline engine is more cheaper and less carbon emission when your
environmental friendly.
