IC ENGINES? Answered
I was thinking that what will happen if we arrange inlet & exhaust valves on the piston (spark plug remaining on cylinder head)?
i think that may be by using metal foam on the cylinder head the knocking of the engine might decrease.
please assume that somehow i use proper mechanisms for valve timing & they dont have any appreciable effect on the piston.
just consider that the weight of the valves is added to the piston.
i was wondering that this might increase the efficiency of the engine because suction will take place more slowly (so it will near a reversible process, so efficiency will increase) & force of the explosion will be better.
please you ppl; if anybody can give me satisfactorily explanatory answers, do reply!
