ENGINE LUBRICATION SYSTEM: WORKING PRINCIPLE, COMPONENTS, AND IMPORTANCE
March 10, 2020 Mechanical Engineering FAHADH V HASSAN

When two metallic surfaces under direct contact move over each other, they create friction which generates heat. This causes excessive wear and tear of those moving parts. However, when a film of lubricating matter separates them from each other, they do not come in physical contact with each other. Thus,

EXHAUST GAS RECIRCULATION (EGR) SYSTEM: WORKING PRINCIPLE, DESIGN, AND BENEFITS
March 10, 2020 Mechanical Engineering FAHADH V HASSAN

Diesel engines tend to emit higher Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) which is harmful to humans. This is because of the high temperatures in the engine cylinders because of the higher compression ratio. To control and decrease the NOx, manufacturers employ ‘Exhaust Gas Recirculation’ technology in engines. The term EGR stands for

EVAPORATIVE EMISSION CONTROL (EVAP) SYSTEM: PARTS, TYPES AND WORKING PRINCIPLES
March 6, 2020 Mechanical Engineering FAHADH V HASSAN

The purpose of evaporative emissions systems is to reduce or eliminate the release of vaporized HC into the atmosphere. The HC vapors, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), react in the atmosphere with nitrogen oxides (NOx) and contribute to the formation of ground-level ozone and photochemical smog. Ground-level ozone is
