The four larger-bore engines in Sulzer's RTA range, the 58, 68, 76 and 84, incorporate many well-known Sulzer features, with some adaptations to suit the change to uniflow scavenging and the much longer stroke. The largest engine, the RTA84, which has a stroke/bore ratio of about 2.9, gives about the same output as the RLB90; this is achieved by increased m.e.p. and increased piston speed; its cylinder dimensions were largely determined by existing machining facilities. The author describes these four larger-bore engines.
