This investigation of airflow requires an examination of the entire airflow path
through the engine, as it exits from the atmosphere above the carburetor to the
atmosphere behind the tailpipe. This chapter introduces all of the various
components and categorizes some of the problems, demands, and influences
that affect each contributor's function. The airflow path very much follows Patrick
Hale's seven cycles and adheres to the principles he describes. Here I call out
each path ...

Note: Since the total pressure recovery /?« of an inlet design may be different
than r]RSpec, the required values of engine airflow mo and the corresponding
values of freestream area AO will be different from those calculated in the engine
performance analyses. Thus the values of OTQ and A0 determined by using the
total pressure recovery of Eq. (4. 14) will be referred to as mospec and AQ 5pec,
respectively, from this point on. Inlet design and sizing begins with an analysis of
its ...

2) Uncertainty analysis error propagation items that are either erroneously
excluded, improperly modeled, or inaccurately bounded (example: incorporation
in the error propagation analysis error bands for instrumentation equipment
without a sufficient historical data base). 3) Errors attributable to ground-test-

engine operation in flight; test envelope assessment at cold day conditions or
airflow; temperature ...

A plugged air filter can seriously restrict airflow, causing the engine to run with
reduced power or even not to start. A restricted exhaust system can cause the
same symptoms; the engine must be able to freely take air in and easily push air
out to breathe well. The intake system must be well sealed so that a strong
vacuum is formed. This ensures that air will flow into the cylinder when the throttle
and intake valves are open. Some engines used a forced induction system to
increase ...

The throttle is a valve that varies the engine airflow, while the electronic fuel
injector sprays a measured amount of fuel into the cylinder. The function of the
throttle is to adjust the amount of air entering the intake manifold. The vehicle
driver controls this mechanism through the throttle (accelerator) pedal. Older
vehicles (pre-1990) used a carburetor to mix air and fuel. A carburetor is a
mechanical device that regulates the amount of fuel drawn into the airstream
based on the speed and ...

Cylinder heads are a key component to the overall airflow system of an engine
and should be one of the first hard parts to consider when creating a plan for a
new engine build. They are responsible for conditioning the air/fuel intake charge
into the cylinder, aid in the conversion of chemical and thermal energy into
mechanical energy, and process spent exhaust gases into the engine exhaust
system. Once the cylinder heads have been determined for an engine build, the
selection of ...

Velocity Air Meters Velocity or vane airflow (VAF) sensors provide an indication of
engine airflow by measuring the force of air rushing into an engine against a
spring-loaded door in an air tunnel. A linear potentiometer linked to the shaft of
the air door measures the angle of opening and sends an electrical signal to the
ECU that changes as the door opens more or less as air velocity changes. After
making certain corrections, the ECU can estimate airflow into the engine based
on VAF ...

Clean air filters provide unrestricted airflow and better engine performance
COMPLEMENTARY MODIFICATION: Change oil and oil filter. Unlike most filters
used to keep contaminates out of an engine, air filter elements can be visually
inspected. Judging the amount of light that passes through a filter is a very old
and trusted method to determine change interval. The minute you lift off the
element and see solid caked dirt in the filter, you know you are long overdue for a
change! Though ...
