Category: The Diesel Engine

German engineer Rudolf Diesel created the diesel engine, a form of internal combustion engine, in the late 19th century. Diesel engines compress the air in the cylinder, which produces heat and ignites the fuel, as opposed to gasoline engines, which light the fuel using a spark plug. Diesel engines are renowned for their effectiveness because of this procedure, known as compression ignition, which produces a combustion process that is more effective than spark ignition.
The background, evolution, benefits, and drawbacks of diesel engines, as well as the most recent developments in diesel engine technology, will all be covered in this section on diesel engines. We will also go over common maintenance and repair issues, as well as emissions laws and emissions control technologies.
