Thermal Engineering by RK Rajput - ref page no. 1032
⁄7)An engine 200mm bore and 300mm stroke works on Otto cycle. The clearance
volume is 0.0016m³. The initial temperature and pressure are 1bar and 60°C.If the
maximum pressure is limited to 24bar, find :
i) The air standard efficiency of the cycle
ii) The mean effective pressure of the cycle . Assume ideal conditions.
Given :
bore diameter d = 0.2m stroke length l = 0.3m clearance volume Vc =0.0016m³
T₁=60+273=333K

P₁= bar Cv =0.718 kJ/kg K

Cp=1.005kJ/kg K

P₃=24 bar
To find: (i) η

(ii) mep

Solution:
Vs = πd²l/4 = π*0.2²*0.3/4 =0.0094248m³
V = Vc+Vs = 0.0016+0.0094248 = 0.011025 m³
rk = V₂/V₁ = V/Vc = 0.011025/0.0016 = 6.89
ηt = 1- (1/rkγ-1) = 1-(1/6.891.4-1) = 0.5379 = 53.79%
T₂/T₁ = (v₁/v₂)γ-1
T₂ = T₁* rkγ-1 = 333 * 6.891.4-1 = 720.66 K
P₂/P₁ = (v₁/v₂)γ
P₂ = P₁* rkγ = 1* 6.891.4= 14.91 bar
