What is the engine V-type engine?

1

Did you know?

V-type engine, all cylinders divided into two groups, the adjacent cylinders put together at a certain angle, so that the two cylinder groups are formed at an angle to the plane, viewed from the side of the cylinder, V-shaped, so called V-type engine. It is easy to increase the displacement and power by expanding the diameter of the cylinder and adapted to the higher number of cylinders.

Principle

The all cylinders divided into two groups, the adjacent cylinders in a certain folder arranged diagonally together, so that the two cylinder groups are formed at an angle of two plane, viewed from the side of the cylinder, V-shaped, so called V-type engine. If the shortened length of the engine, can leave more room for driving cabin, thereby improving comfort. The cylinder is then divided into two rows of “obliquely hit”, can reduce the height and length of the engine, so that the body meet the design requirements. Since the offset is arranged between each cylinder has, therefore there is a large space between the cylinders, it is easy to increase the displacement and power by expanding the diameter of the cylinder. Cylinder V-type engine are disposed at an angle to, a part of the vibration may be offset.

disadvantages

advantages

Small height and length dimensions, arrange them in the car more convenient.

* lower height may be reduced hood height to reduce drag.

· shorter length may cabin occupants leaving more space.

– between each cylinder are arranged offset, which facilitates displacement, and to increase the power by enlarging the diameter of the cylinder and adapted to a higher number of cylinders.

drawbacks

– use two cylinder heads, complex structure and high manufacturing cost.

· engine larger width on both sides of the space becomes smaller, easy to arrange other auxiliary devices.
