ABSTRACT

The paper considers the problems related with the thermodynamic analysis of the conrod-free engine. A mathematical model of the intake system of the conrod-free engine is proposed, which takes into account the kinematics of the slider-crank mechanism. The computational model of the intake system of the engine with the slidercrank mechanism is presented. The model allowed determining dependencies of the mixture temperature in the intake pipeline on the rotation frequency of crankshaft and on the angle of opening of the throttle gate. The total pressure losses in the engine intake system are determined taking into account the kinematics of the slider-crank mechanism. The mathematical model of the intake system of engine allows evaluating the measures aimed at optimizing the engine design and increasing its fuel efficiency.
