  • Very important in injecting fuel into the firing cylinder of diesel engines is the diesel injection pump. What you should know is that the spark plugs are not used to ignite the fuel, which is a different characteristic from the gasoline-powered engines. They rely entirely on the compressing of the diesel in the piston chamber to result in combustion. So, the diesel injection pumps are very important and must be built tough to create the compression value needed for the engine’s operation. Basically, the way how diesel engines work refer to the way the engines just pull in the air and start the combustion cycle. Diesel engines produce less power though than their turbocharged relatives.

    Returning to how diesel engines work, you should know that practically diesel and gasoline engines are rather similar. They are both internal combustion motors designed to change the chemical energy available in diesel or gasoline into mechanical energy. The mechanical energy moves the pistons up and down inside the piston chambers. All the pistons are connected to a crankshaft and the motion which is a linear up-and-down motion creates the rotary motion needed to rotate the prop on your used trawler.

  • In this post i will explain and show how a four stroke engine works. Although it seems like a very complicated machine it is actually quite simple – it relies on some of the basic laws of physics and works on the interconnection of some very simple mechanisms.

    Today, a diesel engine has proved to be extremely efficient and cost effective. If you wonder how diesel engines work, then you may find you answer in reading a few interesting information about the diesel engines.

    We take for granted how easily a plane weighing over half a million pounds lifts off the ground with such ease. How does it happen? The answer is simple. It's engines.

  • Search engines are the key to finding specific information on the vast expanse of the World Wide Web. Without sophisticated search engines, it would be virtually impossible to locate anything on the Web without knowing a specific URL. But do you know how search engines work? And do you know what makes some search engines more effective than others?

    When people use the term search engine in relation to the Web, they are usually referring to the actual search forms that searches through databases of HTML documents, initially gathered by a robot.

    There are basically three types of search engines: Those that are powered by robots (called crawlers; ants or spiders) and those that are powered by human submissions; and those that are a hybrid of the two.

    Crawler-based search engines are those that use automated software agents (called crawlers) that visit a Web site, read the information on the actual site, read the site's meta tags and also follow the links that the site connects to performing indexing on all linked Web sites as well. The crawler returns all that information back to a central depository, where the data is indexed. The crawler will periodically return to the sites to check for any information that has changed. The frequency with which this happens is determined by the administrators of the search engine.

    Human-powered search engines rely on humans to submit information that is subsequently indexed and catalogued. Only information that is submitted is put into the index.

A diesel engine works differently from a petrol engine, even though theyshare major components and both work on the four-stroke . The maindifferences are in the way the fuel is ignited and the way the power output isregulated.
