E. 9 % for a Ec of 18. The 'rate' of gain in 1]il tails off as the compression ratio becomes higher [3]. In practice, compression ratios between 12:1 and 19:1 are usual for diesel engines. The lower ratio applies to medium-speed engines and ratios of the order 15:1 to high-speed engines. There has been a recent trend to higher compression ratios in heavy fuel engines to ensure complete combustion and to reduce fouling [6]. The air temperature in the cylinder at the end of the compression stroke depends very much upon the 36 Power rating and performance compression ratio.

Volumetric efficiency, llv = (volume of air admitted)/(swept volume) Volumetric efficiency gives a comparison of the mass of air actually admitted into the cylinder, with the mass of air corresponding to the swept volume. In naturally aspirated engines the mass of the air admitted is always less than the mass of the swept (air) volume. This is because its temperature is higher and its pressure lower than the supplied, or atmospheric, air. The higher temperature results from the presence of hot residual gases in the clearance spacel and from the heat transferred to the I The clearance stion chamber, is the piston never pressed into this space, which includes the combuthe space in the cylinder into which intrudes.
