1- The assessment involves making:
a_ 1 group project of a gas turbine;
b_ 1 group poject aboutreciprocating engines to be presented in the seminar course;
c_ 1 individual discussion of the project undertaken.
2- The final grade is individual and is given by:
Final Grade = (0.5 ×project) + (0.20 × work) + ((0.30 × individual discussion).
Reciprocating engines: Engine classification. Engine components. Spark-ignition (SI) engine operation cycle. Compression-ignition (CI) engine operation cycle. Examples of SI and Diesel engines. Engine design and operation parameters. Indicated and brake power. Operating variables which affect SI engine performance, efficiency and emissions. SI engine combustion chamber design. Variables which affect CI engine performance, efficiency and emissions. Supercharged and turbocharged engine performance.
Combustion: Combustion modes and flame types. Knock and surface ignition. Octane index and Cetane index. Pollutant formation and control.
