Swept volume means the volume of air that's compressed by the piston as it moves forward.
Comparing with the polymer flooding and SP flooding, the surfactant flooding has better oil displacement efficiency, but as surfactant solution viscosity is low, the flow resistance does not rise and the injection pressure is not higher than the water flooding (Figure 11), which indicates that the surfactant solution is still flowing in the water channel and does not expand the swept volume. The incremental recovery is mainly from the action of washing oil.
This volume ratio is defined as quotient between the swept volume at expansion stroke and the swept volume at compression stroke:
So, greater swept volume is the key to greater power, and a weaker mainspring is the key to easier cocking.
Dry pumps like the new Edwards GXS screw pumps (top left) have a non contacting pumping mechanism without sealing fluid or lubricant in the swept volume. Liquid can pass through the mechanism, but has very different properties to gas resulting in higher power demand.
After very successful introduction of the first two models, V700 and V1100, the Grasso V Series is now being expanded by two new models with larger swept volume:
Thus a main objective of such researches was to obtain the exact swept volume of motion of a rigid body in space (Abdel-Malek et al., 2006).
We know that the full cylinder volume of an IC engine is divided into two parts that is clearance volume and swept volume. When the compression ratio is increased, clearance volume gets reduced and vice-versa.
The Series 1600 has a modular design and is based on an individual cylinder swept volume of 1.75 L.
A 0-62mph time of 9.8 seconds is hardly orgasmic, nor is a top speed of 119mph, but when you remember that the swept volume of the 3-cylinder turbocharged engine is only seven tenths of a litre, the word `impressive' springs to mind..
swept volume derived from a markedly over-square 92 x 75.2 mm bore and stroke.
