Question details






Problem Statement: A single cylinder, four stroke engine has following parameters: bore B 137.2 mm, stroke -165.1 mm, crank shaft offset a 82.55 mm, connecting rod length r 165.1 mm, compression ratio re 16.3. Assume: intake pressure Pintake 14.2 kPa; intake temperature Tintake -60 deg C; engine speed N = 724 rpm; air mass flow 70 kg/hr; fuel mass flow 1.8 kg/hr; fuel low heating value LHV 44 MJ/kg: k 1.35; Cp.air -1.108 kJ/kgK; Cair 0.821 kJ/kgK. Perform a thermodynamic analysis of an Otto cycle for this engine (i.e., isentropic compression stroke 1-2, constant-volume heat input 2-3, isentropic expansion stroke 3-4, and constant-volume heat rejection 4-5) using the information above and air as working fluid. Assume a 95% combustion efficiency. Determine Displacement volume in L ( %) Clearance volume in L(Ve) . Temperature at point 1 in degk ( T) . Pressure at point 2 in Pa (P2) Temperature at point 2 in degK (T2) Mass of fluid inside the cylinder in kg (m) Work during process 1-2 in J (W12) . Heat added during process 2-3 in J(Qin Pressure at point 3 in Pa (Ps) Temperature at point 3 in degk (Ts) Pressure at point 4 in Pa (P4) Temperature at point 4 in degK (T4 Work during process 3-4 in J (W34 Net engine work in J( We) Indicated thermal efficiency (no units) ( η 5%. Be sure to include Answer tolerance units.
