This informative publication is a hands-on reference source for the design of two-stroke engines. The state-of-the-art is presented in such design areas as unsteady gas dynamics, scavenging, combustion, emissions and silencing. In addition, this comprehensive publication features a computer program appendix of 28 design programs, allowing the reader to recreate the applications described in the book. The Basic Design of Two-Stroke Engines offers practical assistance in improving both the mechanical and performance design of this intriguing engine. Organized into eight information-packed chapters, contents of this publication include: Introduction to the Two-Stroke Engine Gas Flow Through Two-Stroke Engines Scavenging the Two-Stroke Engine Combustion in Two-Stroke Engines Computer Modelling of Engines Empirical Assistance for the Designer Reduction of Fuel Consumption and Exhaust Emissions Reduction of Noise Emission from Two-Stroke Engines
This standard provides data and guidance for the design, manufacture, and inspection of straight, non-helical, cylindrical involute splines. It establishes a specification based on the metric module within the range 0.25-10 inclusive, relating to nominal pressure angles of 30 deg, 37.5 deg, and 45 deg. For computer programming, the term "37.5 deg" has been adopted instead of "37 deg, 30 min". Limiting dimensions, variations, and manufacturing tolerances and their effect on the fit between connecting co-axial spline elements, are defined and tabulated. Linear dimensions are expressed in millimeters and micrometers. Angular dimensions are expressed in degrees and decimal degrees.
This manual is the latest edition in the group of spring manuals currently under the review of the SAE Spring Committee. The preceding SAE manuals on coned disk springs were published in 1950 (First edition), and 1955 (Second Edition). Developments during the past 30 years necessitated a complete revision. In addition to updating the treatment of coned Disk springs, material on other spring washers, not directly related to the coned Disk Spring, has been added. In accordance with current sAE practice, customary units have been replaced by metric SI units throughout this manual; for a conversion table see the Appendix.
Flow visualization is an important factor in the aerodynamic development of passenger cars and ground vehicles. This report offers an overview of techniques used to examine complex flow fields, concentrating on techniques used in automotive wind tunnels. Includes numerous full-color photographs showing various flow fields. The following flow visualization techniques are discussed in this report: Surface Flow Description Using Yarn Tufts Surface Flow Description Using a Continuous Oil Film Flow Field Description Using Smoke Streamers Flow Field Description Using Helium Bubbles Streamer Flow Field Description Using a Continuous Motion Survey - Computer Generated Graphics And Many More
It's no secret that lost races and crashes are caused by what is usually referred to as mechanical failure. But author Carroll Smith rightly contends that all failures are human in origin. Poor designs, incorrect manufacture and assembly, unreasonable demands, and negligent maintenance all lead to the dreaded "mechanical failure." Engineer To Win details racing materials technology and many other related subjects. Published by Motorbooks International. Distributed by SAE.
This manual is written as a guide for the designer of leaf spring installations. It contains information which will make it possible to calculate the space required for a leaf spring, to provide suitable attachments, and to determine the elastic and geometric properties of the assembly. The detail design of the spring itself also is described, but it was not the intention of the Committee to lay down fixed rules for this. The choice of leaf lengths, leaf thicknesses, and leaf curvatures depends upon the type of installation and upon the kind of service. Only an experienced spring engineer can make the best choice of these factors. It is therefore recommended that the designer of a leaf spring installation consult a spring maker before the design is finalized.
This publication presents information on technological developments regarding universal joints, including details on design and application practices which have proven to be successful. Subjects covered include: all power transmitting mechanisms classified as universal joints - both the constant and nonconstant velocity types the most commonly used driveshaft arrangements applications requiring the transmission of power from the power source to a drivetrain member; drivetrain disturbances analytical procedures for design analysis, evaluation and application
