Two stroke :
Engines based on the two-strokecycle use two strokes (one up, one down) for every power strokeTwo-stroke engines are widely usedin snowmobiles, lawnmowers, weed-whackers, chain saws, jet skis, mopeds,outboard motors, and many motorcycles.
The cycle is completed in four strokesof the piston or in two revolution of thecrankshaft. This is known as four strokeengine.. The steps involved here are:1.Intake stroke2.Compression stroke:3.Combustion stroke:4.Exhaust stroke
Advantages of four stroke engine:
It has long life when compere to twostroke engineThey consume fuel efficientlyThey produce less of pollution whencompare to two stroke engine
Modern trends in InternalCombustion Engines
Internal combustion engines cancontain any number of cylinders, withnumbers between one and twelve beingcommon, though as many as 36 (LycomingR-7755) have been used. Having morecylinders in an engine yields two potential benefits:first, the engine can have a larger displacement with smaller individualreciprocating masses (that is, the mass of each piston can be less), thus making asmoother-running engine (since the enginetends to vibrate as a result of the pistons'moving up and down).Second, with a greater displacement andmore pistons, more fuel can be combustedand there can be more combustion events(that is, more power strokes) in a given
