Not illustrated. 1909 edition. Excerpt: ...which give temperature falls in second for different mean temperatures with varying initial pressures. The initial pressures are marked upon the figure. In the following table the fall of temperature in the same vessel ignited at different initial pressures is given for second for mean temperatures 16000, 15000, 14000, 1300, 12000, 11000, and 10000 C. Fall Of Temperature 1n The Same Vessel For Sec. At D1fferent Mean Temperatures And D1fferent In1t1al Pressures Vessel. Bairslow and Alexander. o-82 cub.Jl. capacity Here it is evident that increase of initial pressure causes considerable diminution of temperature fall in second for equal mean temperatures. The increase from practically 1 to 3 atmospheres diminishes the temperature fall to less than half in the 16000 and 15000 C. values, and to half in the lower values. The curves at fig. 78 show temperature fall for the different mean temperatures 16000, 15000, 14000, 12000,11000 and 10000 C., plotted against initial pressures in atmospheres. The curves have been extended to 55 lbs. abs. to give an idea of the temperature falls in the region of such densities, which are now common in gas and petrol engine practice. Further experiments are necessary to obtain accurate F1g. 76.--Temperature fall in Jth sec. in the same closed vessel for different initial pressures. Common maximum temperature, 17200 C. data, but these numbers materially aid us in giving some quantitative accuracy to our reasoning upon internal-combustion motor problems. They show that an increase from 1 to 4 atmospheres density the temperature fall diminishes to less than one third at the mean temperatures 1600 and 15000, and to less than one half at the lower temperatures. The proportional heat loss incurred at higher more
