Aircraft propulsion 2. Taking advantage of moving within a fluid, aircraft propulsion is achieved by air-breathing engines, i.e. engines that take a stream of air and throw it at higher speed backwards. The energy source is the combustion of a fuel (carried onboard) with oxygen in the air, but it might also be solar power or nuclear Size: 1MB.   Parts of a Reciprocating Engine: A reciprocating Engine consist of the following parts: Piston; Piston Cylinder; Connecting Rod; Valves (Inlet and Outlet) or Port (Inlet and Outlet) Spark Plug or Fuel Injector; Piston Ring; Cooling jackets; Piston: A piston is circular in shape and it is the moving component of a reciprocating engine.   Aircraft reciprocating engines may be more complex than jet engines, not only in terms of the number of parts, but the stresses they undergo, and actions to assure their airworthiness have not been effective. So much for a half-century of accident investigations, recommendations which may be of marginal impact, and piecemeal regulatory fixes such as [ ]. The diesel is an internal combustion reciprocating engine which operates in the compression ignition cycle. The familiar reciprocating mechanism consists of a number of pistons, each running in a gas-tight cylinder with connecting rod and crankshaft.

Powerplants – Reciprocating Engines. An aircraft engine, or powerplant, produces thrust to propel an aircraft. Reciprocating engines and turboprop engines work in combination with a propeller to produce thrust. Turbojet and turbofan engines produce thrust by increasing the velocity of air flowing through the engine. A reciprocating engine, also often known as a piston engine, is typically a heat engine (although there are also pneumatic and hydraulic reciprocating engines) that uses one or more reciprocating pistons to convert pressure into a rotating motion. This article describes the common features of all types. Aircraft Reciprocating Engines: An Aviation Maintenance Publishers, Inc.
