A space over, or in front of, a boiler furnace where the gases from the fire become more thoroughly mixed and burnt.
The clearance space in the cylinder of an internal combustion engine where the charge is compressed and ignited.
The space within the cylinder when the piston is at the top of its travel. It is formed by the top of the piston and a cavity in the cylinder head. Since most of the air-fuel mixture's combustion takes place in this space, its design and shape can greatly affect the power, fuel efficiency, and emissions of the engine.
Space between the cylinder head and piston (at top dead centre) in which combustion takes place.
The area in the head where the fuel/air mixture is compressed and ignited by the spark plug. Fly-cutting reduces its size, porting and hemi-cutting increases its size.
Where the fuel-air mixture begins to burn. It is the space at the top of the cylinder when the piston is at top center.
Space in furnace where combustion of gaseous products from fuel takes place.
or Combustion Chamber Volume: The volume contained within the cavity or space enclosed by the cylinder head, including the "top" surfaces of the intake and exhaust valves and the spark plug. Not the same volume as the combustion space volume.
This refers to the area in the cylinder between the cylinder head and the piston.
a dome-shaped space at the top of each cylinder. The air/gasoline mixture ignites and burns explosively in this space, producing power.
an area inside the engine where a fuel and air mixture is introduced and ignited by a spark plug When this mixture of petrol and air is ignited, it explodes with tremendous power and it's this explosive power that pushes the car forwards along the road
A chamber or space adjacent to the furnace in a boiler designed for the purpose of completing the combustion of the gases from the fuel.
The space between the piston and cylinder head in an internal combustion engine where the charge of fuel plus air is burned to produce power.
In an internal combustion engine, the space between the top of the piston and the cylinder head, in which the air-fuel mixture is burned.
The space remaining at the top of the cylinder when the piston is at the top dead center position. Where the fuel-air mixture begins to burn.
When the piston is at the top of its compression stroke with the valves closed, the resulting sealed area contains a compressed mixture of fuel and air. When the spark plug fires, this mixture is "Combusted" or ignited to push the piston back down. That area that the mixture is compressed into is the combustion chamber.
The part of a boiler, furnace or woodstove where the burn occurs; normally lined with firebrick or molded or sprayed insulation.
The area in the cylinder where the air/fuel mixture actually ignites and burns. Located between the top of the piston and the cylinder head.
Shaped area in the cylinder head into which the fuel/air mixture is compressed by the piston and where the spark from the -spark plug ignites the mixture.
The chamber in a rocket where the fuel and oxidizer are ignited and burned. By common usage the expansion nozzle is included as part of the combustion chamber, particularly for liquid-propelled rocket engines.
The actual compartment where waste is burned in an incinerator.
An area inside the engine where air fuel mixture is drawn into, compressed, and then burned (combustion) to produce power to propel the vehicle. If the combustion chamber has accumulated carbon deposits, high NOx emissions may result.
The part of an engine in which combustion takes place, normally the volume of the cylinder between piston crown and the cylinder head in a reciprocating engine.
The part of the engine in the cylinder head where combustion takes place.
a recessing of firebox tubeplate inside the boiler in order to increase the firebox volume at the expense of reducing the length of the tubes, so as to promote better combustion in long-barrelled boilers.
The part of the cylinder within an engine block where the fuel/air mixture is compressed by the piston and ignited by a spark from the spark plug.
is the actual compartment (chamber) where wastes are burned (combusted) in an incinerator.
An enclosed vessel in which chemical oxidation of fuel occurs.
Area in the cylinder between the cylinder head and the piston. The combustion of fuel and air makes the piston move.
The area in the engine in which a mixture of fuel and air is ignited to push the piston back down after it has travelled upwards. The design and shape of a combustion chamber can have a direct affect on an engine's performance and efficiency.
part of a turbine engine in which the propulsive power is developed by combustion of the injected fuel and the expansive force of the resulting gases.
When discussing railway locomotives, this refers to an area within the boiler where gases are burnt, or combusted. This normally takes place inside the firebox. Some LNWR Locomotives (e.g. the Greater Britain and John Hick classes) had an additional combustion chamber part-way along the boiler which was intended to re-ignite unburnt matter, thereby releasing additional energy and reducing smoke. In reality it is unlikely that re-ignition actually occurred and it necessitated having four troublesome tube plates in each boiler instead of the normal two.
The volume of space at the top of the cylinder where burning of the air/fuel mixture begins.
The space between the top of the cylinder and the top of the piston where the explosion of the air-fuel mixture takes place
