HIGH SUPERCHARGED ENGINE OF LOW COMPRESSION RATIO WITH AIR INLET HEATING DEVICE

Describes a diesel engine equipped with an air inlet heating device which is used when the rate of engine supercharging is increased. Problems associated with increasing the supercharging rate are dicussed, and the manner in which the heating device overcomes these problems is explained. Engine performance, both before and after supercharging, is described and compared with relation to engine stresses, the heat release rate, and combustion chamber temperatures, as well as other factors. The development of the air inlet heating device is described, with the automation of the device also discussed.
