Concept of an In-line Spark-ignition Engine
Kočvara, Antonín ; Píštěk, Václav (referee) ; Drápal, Lubomír (advisor)
This thesis deals with comparison of straight four-cylinder petrol engine with a displacement of 1,5 litres and its three-cylinder alternative, which is based on a four-cylinder. The thesis starts with a research, where are examples of some currently manufactured engines. The research is followed by design of both engines, where the design of the crank mechanisms is made more in detail. After that, both crank mechanisms are subjected to dynamic analysis using FEM and MBS methods. The thesis ends with comparison of both engines in terms of crankshaft load, mass and dimensions.
Range extender of an electric vehicle
Jelínek, David ; Píštěk, Václav (referee) ; Drápal, Lubomír (advisor)
This thesis describes the design of a four-stroke engine with two cylinders, using as a range extender. The first chapter briefly introduces the company Škoda Auto a.s., for which the range extender was designed. Also, there is a list of the available electric and hybrid vehicles manufactured by this company. The next chapter deals with the division of hybrid vehicles, as an intermediate step for the use of electric vehicles, the reason for their use and the definition of advantages and disadvantages of hybrid vehicles. Also, the range extender technology is described here. The third chapter contains a description of the conceptual design of the range extender and describes the design and balancing of the crankshaft in more detail. The last chapter describes the calculation of the crankshaft dynamics and the individual parts load. The resulting crankshaft safety is determined by comparing the calculated values with a series-produced 1.0 MPI evo engine, which is the base of the described range extender.
Cylinder deactivation of a spark-ignition engine
Fridrichová, Kateřina ; Píštěk, Václav (referee) ; Drápal, Lubomír (advisor)
This thesis focuses on a technology called cylinder deactivation. The technology helps reducing emissions and fuel consumption. The first part summarizes the possibilities of application of the cylinder deactivation technology as well as advantages resulting from combination with other technologies. The thesis also consists of two design options for valvetrain in inline four-cylinder engine and the results of simulations of dynamics of its cranktrain.
Brake mean effective pressure of an internal-combustion engine for passengers cars and motorcycles
Vopršal, Oldřich ; Svída, David (referee) ; Drápal, Lubomír (advisor)
The aim of this work is to discuss the meaning, definition and mapping of the characteristics of the value of the mean effective pressure depending on the historical development of internal combustion engines of automobiles and motorcycles from the initial concepts to the current development. In this work I want to compare and evaluate the values of the mean effective pressure for non-supercharged and supercharged piston combustion cars and motorcycles. Part of the work will be a graphical representation of the values of mean effective pressures and subsequent analysis and evaluation of the values against the design concept of the internal combustion engine in the historical period. Furthermore, a description of the structural elements that contribute to the increase of the mean effective pressure.
Vehicle Electronic Instrument Cluster
Janhuba, Tomáš ; Drápal, Lubomír (referee) ; Svída, David (advisor)
Bachelor thesis deals with car dashboard. Thesis is about what is the purpose of dashboard, what was its development, what types of dashboard exist or form in which the information is transmitted to the driver. Also it’s about what to focus on and how to do the design. The last part is about my concept of dashboard and about possible innovations.
Over-expanded internal-combustion engines
Novotný, Pavel ; Janoušek, Michal (referee) ; Drápal, Lubomír (advisor)
At the beginning there is a short history of over-expanded engines. Subsequently, the thermodynamics of ideal over-expanded cycles are analysed and compared with the ideal Otto cycle. The thesis also deals with some design solutions for achieving over-expansion in an internal combustion engine. In the thesis there are also selected over-expanded engines from leading world carmakers. At the end the thesis deals with systems with variable compression ratio.
Design of a functional model of a chassis dynamometer
Sobota, Matej ; Drápal, Lubomír (referee) ; Štětina, Josef (advisor)
The aim of my diploma thesis was engineering design of 4x4 chassis dynamometer model at 1:10 scale for presentation purpose and for testing RC cars models. The first part describes the current types of chassis dynamometers. The main goal of the thesis was designed the model itself in order to produce some parts of the dynamometer using 3D printing. The work also includes production drawings of individual parts and economic estimate of the entire production.
Piston of a spark-ignition engine for 3-D printing
Zelko, Lukáš ; Dlugoš, Jozef (referee) ; Drápal, Lubomír (advisor)
The goal of the thesis was to design a piston manufactured by conventional method and subsequently adjusted one for additive manufacturing. Beside the designs, thermo-structural model was created for both pistons, considering maximal loading of the engine. Analysis evaluation showed the possibility of further application of the new technology in comparison to current one, within automotive industry.
Structural Analysis of an Engine Block Design
Chevtaikin, Sergei ; Dlugoš, Jozef (referee) ; Drápal, Lubomír (advisor)
This master thesis focuses on structural analysis of combustion engine block. The main goal of this work was the design and compare individual solutions of long and short engine’s blocks. First part of work shows existing engine block designs and solutions. Based on the research part, the CAD design of the engine blocks and their discretization was performed by pre-processor programs. Structural analysis and their final comparison were provided by FEM and MBS programs.
Exhaust Gas Recirculation of a Spark-ignition Engine
Dohnal, Martin ; Lempera, Aleš (referee) ; Drápal, Lubomír (advisor)
This master‘s thesis deals with design adjustment of spark ignition combustion engine, which might offer larger share of recirculated exhaust gases in cylinder for reaching a large number of benefits that exhaust gas recirculation can offer. The introductory theoretical part describes exhaust gas recirculation and its influence on spark ignition combustion engine. In the following part the methods of mixture layering and types of intake ports are described. Further design of spiral intake port is made based on calculations. Capability of mixture layering is valuated by numerical simulation. Flow properties of intake ports are compared to production version by an experiment on flow station.
