Ignition produced by compression of the air in a cylinder of an internal combustion engine before fuel is admitted.



Related Terms

ELECTRIC IGNITION

Ignition of a charge of fuel vapor and air in an internal combustion engine by passing a high-voltage electric electron flow.

FUEL INJECTOR

A pump mechanism that sprays fuel into the cylinder of an internal combustion engine at the appropriate part of the cycle.

GASOLINE ENGINE

An internal combustion engine that uses a mixture of air and gasoline vapor as a fuel.

EXHAUST VALVE

The valve on a cylinder in an internal combustion engine which controls the discharge of spent gas.

OVERHEAD-VALVE ENGINE

A fourstroke-cycle internal combustion engine having its valves located in the cylinder head, operated by pushrods that actuate rocker arms. Abbreviated OHV engine. Also known as valve-in-head engine.

IGNITION SYSTEM

The system in an internal combustion engine that initiates the chemical reaction between fuel and air in the cylinder charge by producing a spark.

DIESEL CYCLE

An internal combustion engine cycle in which the heat of compression ignites the fuel.

LIQUID-COOLED ENGINE

An internal combustion engine with a jacket cooling system in which liquid, usually water, is circulated to maintain acceptable operating temperatures of machine parts.

PRE-MIXED FLAME

Before ignition, the fuel and air are intimately mixed. The combustion process is controlled by heat conduction and diffusion of radicals.

HUMPHREY GAS PUMP

A combined internal combustion engine and pump in which the metal piston has been replaced by a column of water.
