The Kadenacy effect is an effect of pressure-waves in gases. It is named after Michel Kadenacy who obtained a French patent for an engine utilizing the effect in There are also European and US patents. In simple terms, the momentum of the exhaust gas leaving the cylinder of an internal combustion engine creates a pressure-drop in the cylinder which assists the flow of a fresh charge of systm, or fuel-air mixture, into the cylinder.
The effect can be maximized by kadenacg design of the inlet and exhaust passages. The Kadenacy effect has been utilized in pulse jet engines and in two-stroke piston engines and is important in the design of high-performance motorcycle engines. In a two-stroke engine the pressure-drop resulting from the Kadenacy effect assists the flow of a kadehacy fuel-air mixture charge into the cylinder.
However, the Kadenacy effect alone is not sufficient and must be boosted in some way. In small engines this is done by crankcase compression and, in large engines, by the use of a Roots blower or turbocharger. France — France, officially the French Republic, is a country with territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories.
France spanssquare kilometres and had a population of almost 67 million people syztem of January It is a unitary republic with the capital in Paris. The area was annexed in 51 BC by Rome, which held Gaul untilFrance emerged as a major European power in kadenacg Late Middle Ages, with its victory in the Hundred Years War strengthening state-building and political centralisation. During the Renaissance, French culture flourished and a colonial empire was established.
The 16th century was dominated by civil wars between Catholics and Protestants. France became Europes dominant cultural, political, and military power under Louis XIV, in the 19th century Napoleon took power and established the First French Empire, whose subsequent Napoleonic Wars shaped the course of continental Europe.
Following the collapse of the Empire, France endured a succession of governments culminating with the establishment of the French Third Republic in Following liberation ina Fourth Republic was established and later dissolved in the course of the Algerian War, the Fifth Republic, led by Charles de Gaulle, was formed in and remains to this day.
Algeria and nearly all the colonies became independent in the s with minimal controversy and typically retained close economic. France has long been a centre of art, science. It hosts Europes fourth-largest number of cultural UNESCO World Heritage Sites and receives around 83 million foreign tourists annually, France is a developed country with the worlds sixth-largest economy by nominal GDP and ninth-largest by purchasing power parity.
In terms of household wealth, it ranks fourth in the world. France performs well in international rankings of education, health care, life expectancy, France remains a great power in the world, being one of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council with the power to veto and an official nuclear-weapon state. It is a member state of the European Union and the Eurozone.
Exhaust gas — Exhaust gas or flue gas is emitted as a result of the combustion of fuels such as natural gas, gasoline, petrol, biodiesel blends, diesel fuel, fuel oil, or coal.
According to the type of engine, it is discharged into the atmosphere through an exhaust pipe, flue gas stack and it often disperses downwind in a pattern called an exhaust plume. A study by MIT indicates that 53, early deaths occur per year in the United States alone because of vehicle emissions. According to another study from the university, traffic fumes alone cause the death of 5, people every year just in the United Kingdom.
The largest part of most combustion gas is nitrogen, water vapor, and carbon dioxide, Exhaust gas temperature is important to the functioning of the catalytic converter of an internal combustion engine. It may be measured by an exhaust gas temperature gauge, EGT is also a measure of engine health in gas-turbine engines. During the first two minutes after starting the engine of a car that has not been operated for several hours, inefficient catalytic converter under cold conditions, Catalytic converters are very inefficient until up to their operating temperature.
This time has much reduced by moving the converter closer to the exhaust manifold. The small converter handles the start-up emissions, which enough time for the larger main converter to heat up.
Further improvements can be realised in many ways, including heating, thermal battery, chemical reaction preheating, flame heating. The requirements were phased in beginning with vehicles and all new cars, in spark-ignition engines the gases resulting from combustion of the fuel and air mix are called exhaust gases. People exposed to it should wear a gas mask, in aircraft gas turbine engines, exhaust gas temperature is a primary measure of engine health.
Typically the EGT is compared with an engine power indication called engine pressure ratio. For example, at full power EPR there will be a maximum permitted EGT limit, once an engine reaches a stage in its life where it reaches this EGT limit, the engine will require specific maintenance in order to rectify the problem.
For most airlines, this information is monitored remotely by the airline maintenance department by means of ACARS. In jet engines and rocket engines, exhaust from propelling nozzles which in some applications shows shock diamonds, Flue gas Flue gas emissions from fossil fuel combustion In steam engine terminology the exhaust is steam that is now so low in pressure that it can no longer do useful work. Internal combustion engine — An internal combustion engine is a heat engine where the combustion of a fuel occurs with an oxidizer in a combustion chamber that is an integral part of the working fluid flow circuit.
In an internal combustion engine the expansion of the high-temperature and high-pressure gases produced by combustion applies direct force to some component of the engine, the force is applied typically to pistons, turbine blades, rotor or a nozzle. This force moves the component over a distance, transforming chemical energy into mechanical energy. Working fluids can be air, hot water, pressurized water or even liquid sodium, ICEs are usually powered by energy-dense fuels such as gasoline or diesel, liquids derived from fossil fuels.
While there are many applications, most ICEs are used in mobile applications and are the dominant power supply for vehicles such as cars, aircraft. Typically an ICE is fed with fossil fuels like natural gas or petroleum products such as gasoline, there is a growing usage of renewable fuels like biodiesel for compression ignition engines and bioethanol or methanol for spark ignition engines.

Hydrogen is sometimes used, and can be made from fossil fuels or renewable energy. Various scientists and engineers contributed to the development of internal combustion engines, inJohn Barber developed a turbine. In Thomas Mead patented a gas engine, also in Robert Street patented an internal combustion engine, which was also the first to use liquid fuel, and built an engine around that time.
KadennacySamuel Brown patented the first internal combustion engine to be applied industrially, inBelgian Jean Joseph Etienne Lenoir produced a gas-fired kadeenacy combustion engine.
InNikolaus Otto patented the first atmospheric gas engine, inAmerican George Brayton invented the first commercial liquid-fuelled internal combustion engine. InNikolaus Otto, kadenxcy with Kafenacy Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach, patented the compressed charge, inKarl Benz patented a reliable two-stroke gas engine. InRudolf Diesel developed the first compressed charge, compression ignition engine, inRobert Goddard launched the first liquid-fueled rocket.
Inthe Heinkel He became the worlds first jet aircraft, at one time, the word engine meant any piece of machinery — a sense that persists in expressions such as siege engine. A motor kadenwcy any machine that produces mechanical power, traditionally, electric motors are not referred to as Engines, however, combustion engines are often referred to as motors.
In boating an internal combustion engine that is installed in the hull is referred to as an engine, reciprocating piston engines are by far the most common power source for land and water vehicles, including automobiles, motorcycles, ships and to a lesser extent, locomotives. Two-stroke engine — A two-stroke, or two-cycle, engine is a type of internal combustion engine which completes a power cycle with two strokes of the piston during only one crankshaft revolution. This is in contrast to an engine, which requires four strokes of the systtem to complete a power cycle.
In a two-stroke engine, the end of the combustion stroke, two-stroke engines often have a high power-to-weight ratio, power being available in kaxenacy narrow range of rotational speeds called the power band.

Compared to four-stroke engines, two-stroke engines have a reduced number of moving parts. The first commercial two-stroke engine involving in-cylinder compression is attributed to Scottish engineer Dugald Clerk, however, unlike most later two-stroke engines, his had a separate charging cylinder. The crankcase-scavenged engine, employing the area below the piston as a pump, is generally credited to Englishman Joseph Day.
The first truly practical two-stroke engine is attributed to Yorkshireman Alfred Angas Scott, gasoline versions are particularly useful in lightweight or portable applications such as chainsaws and motorcycles.
In a two-stroke engine, the transfer from the engine to the cooling system is less than in a four-stroke. Two-stroke petrol engines are preferred when mechanical simplicity, light weight, the Japanese manufacturer Suzuki did the same in the s.
Production of two-stroke cars ended in the s in the West, eastern Bloc countries continued until aroundwith the Trabant and Wartburg in East Germany.
They are also common in power tools used outdoors, such as lawnmowers, chainsaws, with direct fuel injection and a sump-based lubrication system, a two-stroke engine produces air pollution no worse than a four-stroke, and it can achieve higher thermodynamic efficiency. Therefore, the cycle has also been used in large diesel engines, most notably large industrial and marine engines, as well as some trucks.
Although the principles remain kadenzcy same, the details of various two-stroke engines differ depending on the type.
The design types vary according to the method of introducing the charge to the cylinder, the method of scavenging the cylinder, piston port is the simplest of the designs and the kadenaxy common in small two-stroke engines.
All functions are controlled solely by the covering and uncovering the ports as it moves up. In the s, Yamaha worked out some principles for this system.
They found that, in general, widening an exhaust port increases the power by the amount as raising the port. However, there is a limit to the width of a single exhaust port. Motorcycle engine — A motorcycle engine is an engine that powers a motorcycle. Motorcycle engines are typically two-stroke or four-stroke internal combustion engines, although some mopeds had friction drive to the front tyre, a motorcycle engine invariably drives the rear wheel, power being sent to the driven wheel by belt, chain or shaft.
Most engines have a gearbox with up to six ratios, reverse gear is occasionally found on heavy tourers and sidecar motorcycles. Gear changes are effected using a foot-pedal and manual clutch.
Some bikes have automatic or semi-automatic gearboxes, outside the USA, engine capacities typically ranged from about 50 cc to cc, but in Europe since motorcycles with rather larger capacities have become common.
In the USA, V-twin engined-motorcycles with capacities of cc or more have been the norm since the s, ststem first motorcycles were powered by steam engines. The earliest example is the French Michaux-Perreaux steam velocipede of and this was followed by the Syatem Roper steam velocipede ofand a number of other steam powered two and three wheelers, manufactured and sold to the public on through the early 20th century.
While today nearly every motorcycle has its engine in the center of the frame, the origins of the scooter engine arrangement can be traced back to the 19th century but the current layout became generally adopted after the Great War. The modern equivalent became universally popular in the s and remains much the same today, the Otto cycle gasoline internal combustion engine was first used on an kaeenacy two-wheeler created by Gottlieb Daimler to test the practicality of such an engine in a vehicle.
The Oxford English Dictionary, for example, defines the word motorcycle this way, the steam cycles were also simply neglected and forgotten by many historians, even as the Michaux-Perreaux waited forty years on display in the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu. Diesel motorcycles were also experimented with briefly throughout the 20th century, and are again the subject of interest due to fuel economy. The overwhelming majority of the produced and used in the world today have small displacement kadenacyy single-cylinder engines.
Many developed countries have graduated licensing, syetem a rider is licensed for a period of time to ride only smaller-displacement motorcycles before being allowed to ride larger ones, almost all production motorcycles have gasoline internal combustion engines. Both four-stroke and two-stroke engines are used, but strict laws have led to far fewer two-strokes. A few have used Syetem rotary engines, but no Wankel bikes are currently in production, Motorcycle engines can be air cooled or liquid cooled, and optionally include oil cooling as well.
Some scooters use batteries and an electric motor, the TT races introduced a new category TTX for electric bikes using fuel-cells or batteries. Motorcycle engines can be mounted transversely, with the crankshaft aligned kadenafy to the frame or longitudinally, motorcycles with transversely mounted engines are more suited to have chain or belt final-drive.
Turbocharger — Turbochargers were originally known as turbosuperchargers when all forced induction devices were classified as superchargers. Nowadays the term supercharger is usually applied only to mechanically driven forced induction devices, compared to a mechanically driven systej, turbochargers tend to be more efficient, but less responsive.
Twincharger refers to an engine with both a supercharger and kaddenacy turbocharger, turbochargers are commonly used on truck, car, train, aircraft, and construction equipment engines. They are most often used with Otto cycle and Diesel cycle internal combustion engines and they have also been found useful in automotive fuel cells.
Forced induction dates from the late 19th century, when Gottlieb Daimler patented the technique of using a pump to force air into an internal combustion engine in Turbochargers were first used in aircraft engines such as the Napier Lioness in the s.
Ships and locomotives equipped with turbocharged diesel engines began sgstem in the s, turbochargers were also used in aviation, most widely used by the United States. Turbochargers are widely used in car and commercial vehicles because they allow smaller-capacity engines to have improved fuel economy, reduced emissions, higher power, in contrast to turbochargers, superchargers are mechanically driven by the engine.
