Abstract

Internal combustion engines use fossil fuels. They determine the typical construction of transportation means by transforming the chemical energy in fuel into mechanical power. The principle is common in vehicles, airplanes, ships, and portable machines.

Keywords

Internal Combustion Engine Spark Ignition Engine Power Stroke Brayton Cycle Combustion Cycle 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
