Eventually, even the peak firing pressure (pfp) was constrained to a relatively 'common' value of 200bar on recent engines, in order to avoid compromising too much the engine design for keeping the mechanical efficiency at part load on a high level [6].
Tenders are invited for Adaptor And Valve For Indicator, Compression And Firing Pressure To Dlw Drg.
If it won't work right on the bench with dummy rounds, adding 45,000 psi of firing pressure to the equation is not going to make things work better.
The firing pressure in the combustion chamber causes the rings to load from the back side pushing out against the cylinder wall.
Increased firing pressure might have been one of the factors contributing to the accounting shenanigans of the late 1990s.
Five bearing crankshaft is optimized and evaluated for high peak firing pressure in terms of stress fatigue factor, minimum oil film thickness and torsional vibrations amplitudes and found within limits.
Other significant improvements included lowering of the turbo speed by 400 rpm (resulting in longer turbo life cycles) and a drop in peak cylinder firing pressure by as much as 90 psi (for longer power pack life).
Experimental investigation of In-cylinder pressure was done and the engine's ignition timing and injection duration was calibrated to operate the engine below peak firing pressure limits, without knocking.
This variation of pressure from valve-to-valve, even though the average pressure in the manifold is relatively steady, causes high cycle-to-cycle variations in the firing pressure.
This, along with the redesign of the precombustion chamber and the cylinder head, creates a more controlled and gradual firing pressure within the cylinder -- all of which leads to reduced engine noise at low engine rpm.
