Pressure, temperatur inside ic engine

    pressure, temperatur inside ic engine......

    1. what will be the temperature produced during the combustion
    process?? (NEGLECTING THE COOLING EFFECT PRODUCED by the cooling system)

    2. The temperature of the exhaust gas at the exhaust
    "port" ??(CONSIDERING AND WITHOUT CONSIDERING THE COOLING EFFECT PRODUCED by the cooling system)

    3. In case of a turbo-charger what will be pressure and temperature
    of the fresh air which will be injected to the engine??......for any capacity of turbocharger.....

    Depends entirely on the engine design, type, and operating conditions. Without these, the answers are:
    1 - very hot
    2 - hot
    3 - between 0 and 5 bars, between about -10 and 200 degrees Celsius.

    1.about 800-1200 degree C
    2.about 80-120C
    3.as brewnog said

    thankx for u r replys..........brewnog as u said that it entirely depends on the design,type and operating conditions....plz...consider a normal ic engine in mahindra scorpio ...it has
    cc:2609cc
    max power:115bhp(85 kw)@3800rpm
    max.torque:28.3kgm @ 1700-2200 rpm...


    so for the above case wt will be the answers??

    thankx in advance

    I take it that a Mahindra Scorpio is a car? Petrol or Diesel? Turbocharged or naturally aspirated? Compression ratio? Under what operating conditions? Speed? Torque? Ambient temperature? Altitude? Timing?
    Combustion temperatures may be 1500 Celsius. Exhaust port temperatures may be up to 600 Celsius. However, at idle, these could be much lower.

    Exhaust port temperatures on load are much higher than this.

    yea scorpio is a SUV brewnog
    muthu, not everyone knows about mahindra, and there is more to be said about the specs of the engine

    muthu2007,
    Temperature produced during the combustion process with a compression ratio of 11 to 1 the ideal otto cycle temperature would be around 4500 degrees C and compression ratio of 5 to 1 the ideal otto cycle temperature would be around 3500 degrees C.

    2. The temperature of the exhaust gas at the exhaust
    "port" ??(CONSIDERING AND WITHOUT CONSIDERING THE COOLING EFFECT PRODUCED by the cooling system)

    I am giong to say the same temperature of the cylinder minus a few degrees.

    Exhaust port temperatures are MUCH cooler than peak cylinder temperatures, and are much more like average cylinder temperatures. Think about how you'd make an exhaust valve live at 4500 degrees C!

    Depending on the engine type, and ambient and operating conditions, exhaust port temperatures very rarely get above 750 degrees C.

    Hi there:

    Here are two URLs that can help you with calculations related to your question.

    Online calculators for simple power cycles (Carnot, Brayton, Otto and Diesel)
    http://members.aol.com/engware/calc3.htm

    Spreadsheet dealing with combustion calculations
    http://engware.i-dentity.com/pf/combustion.xls

    Here is a plot regading combustion products flame temperature for ideal and complete stoichiometric combustion conditions.

    I do hope that the provided URLs will cover some of your concerns when doing engineering calculations related to the technical performance of simple power cycles and combustion.

    Thanks,

    Gordan
