The defining characteristic
Main article: 2-stroke engine
The defining characteristic of this kind of engine is that each piston completes a cycle every crankshaft revolution. The 4 processes of intake, compression, power and exhaust take place in only 2 strokes so that it is not possible to dedicate a stroke exclusively for each of them. Starting at TDC the cycle consist of:
Power: While the piston is descending the combustion gases perform work on it?as in a 4-stroke engine?. The same thermodynamic considerations about the expansion apply.
Scavenging: Around 75° of crankshaft rotation before BDC the exhaust valve or port opens, and blowdown occurs. Shortly thereafter the intake valve or transfer port opens. The incoming charge displaces the remaining combustion gases to the exhaust system and a part of the charge may enter the exhaust system as well. The piston reaches BDC and reverses direction. After the piston has traveled a short distance upwards into the cylinder the exhaust valve or port closes; shortly the intake valve or transfer port closes as well.
Compression: With both intake and exhaust closed the piston continues moving upwards compressing the charge and performing a work on it. As in the case of a 4-stroke engine, ignition starts just before the piston reaches TDC and the same consideration on the thermodynamics of the compression on the charge.
While a 4-stroke engine uses the piston as a positive displacement pump to accomplish scavenging taking 2 of the 4 strokes, a 2-stroke engine uses the last part of the power stroke and the first part of the compression stroke for combined intake and exhaust. The work required to displace the charge and exhaust gases comes from either the crankcase or a separate blower. For scavenging, expulsion of burned gas and entry of fresh mix, two main approaches are described: Loop scavenging, and Uniflow scavenging, SAE news published in the 2010s that 'Loop Scavenging' is better under any circumstance than Uniflow Scavenging.6
Virtual car for real money
The Internet is full of all kinds of automotive ads. They concern mainly the sale of used cars. Is it worth it to use the online services when looking for a car? It is certainly a very good solution if you do not have stalked the offer on the eye. You have to admit, however, that the majority of websites of the car in a good condition and at a reasonable price "spread" very quickly and to hunt down the network a good car you have to try hard. On the other hand, among the announcements automotive missing SELL they offer us to buy a good car, and really the facts are quite different.
Is it worth the basics of car?
Why expand their knowledge in this field, even when we do not care too much about the automotive industry? Who knows, maybe in time Moto us interested. Even if you do not want to review the basics about cars mainly because in the event of any fault, we can be aware of what has failed. Clarification of the problem is necessary to remove improperly working parts and restore the efficiency of the machine. Moreover, knowledge of what is inside the car allows faster and more efficiently operating system. Such information is useful also for this reason that many people would like to explore this issue, however, hampered by the same specialist texts Automotive quickly discouraged.
