Re: very informative graphs

What a coincidence! Just a little while ago I was thinking of finding or making something like that, but not as good. These are great!

Re: very informative graphs

Thanks for posting these!

The most surprising thing for me on the top graph was the friction loss. I expected it to be low at idle and high at full load.

Re: very informative graphs

That isn't surprising because the graph is in percent of fuel energy. That's why BSFC improves closer to full load, and why I prefer low RPM with open throttle.

Also, reciprocating loss is missing, but then the graphs don't deal in RPM.

Re: very informative graphs

Ok, I think I get it now. So if we burn 1 cup of gas in an engine at idle, it will run for quite a long time and it will turn so many rotations that the relatively small frictional losses per crank rotation will be additive and will be very significant.

Whereas if we run a cup of gas through an engine on a dyno at near full load, it will not run very long (fewer revolutions) so the frictional losses add up to less even though they are greater per revolution.
