Investigation Of The Effect Of The Temperature Of Intake Air On The Economy And Torque Of A Gasoline Engine, Arthur W. Crisfield Jun 1922

Investigation Of The Effect Of The Temperature Of Intake Air On The Economy And Torque Of A Gasoline Engine, Arthur W. Crisfield

Miscellaneous Papers

The object of this investigation is to make a study of the effect, on the economy and torque of a gasoline motor, of heating the air going to the carburetor.

The knowledge gained from such an investigation is of considerable importance and might be used in determining the temperature at which to supply air to the carburetor of a motor in order to get the best results under its working conditions. General practice indicates that a motor will run more smoothly and first regularly when the temperature of the intake air is 150 degrees or more. The theory is that ...
