6 stroke engine

I am a mechanical engineering student and wish to know how a 6 stroke engine works. I would appreciate any help from the experts. Thanks in advance.

Did you search the forums?

Yep, do a search as we've chatted about these previously. Then if you have any ideas or qustions please post it!

A six stroke engine is an engine having 6 cylinders (ie six combustion chambers). Each cykinder is connected to the crank shaft. it has different firing order for the cylinders ensuring a continuos supply of power and a relief of mechanical stresses on the engine.

Is a 6 stroke engine a V6 engine?

No, a v-6 is a engine configuration with cylinders (six of them) in a "v" formation. Stroke refers to the cycle of the combustion process. Most engines are 4 stroke (or 4 cycle). there are also 2 stroke engineswhich are fairly common. A 6 stroke engine adds another complete movement of the piston to a standard four stroke. Usually it involves water/steam to both cool the cylinder and also provide more power. Do a search in this forum as we've discussed it previously as well.

thanks Owusu Buabeng,
Information provided by u was really useful . but i think is no where related to NUMBER OF CYLINDER.....and one of the doubt that i have is about its working... i am not much clear with it... so please provide me some sites or video...
thanks...

Cyclic process is one with the same initial and final conditions. So, a 4 stroke engine consists of 2 cycles and not 4 cycles.

6 stroke engine is nothing to do with the number of cylinders,
even a single cylinder engine can be a 6 stroke,
like four stroke engine need not have four cylinders.
the number of times piston moves in chamber defines the number of strokes

ya dude its just show no. of cylinder is used

actully dear there r only 4 stroke
suction,compresion,expention n thn exhaust
how v can increase these stroke
if there is an idea thn plz share wt me.

a six stroke engine has 6 stroke in which first 4 stroke sare simmilar to tat of a normal 4-s engine and additional 2 stroke are added to it.
The six-stroke engine has six-strokes, i.e., six to and fro movements of the piston. Out of these six strokes there are two power strokes per cycle, which results in producing more power by the engine. Since the six-stroke engine introduced here has two combustion processes in one cycle, it offers new methods of combustion control which can't be attained in an ordinary four-stroke engine.

it"s very simple in working..
from a four stroke engine after the exhaust is about to be completed supply fresh air or
water is supplied due to expansion of steam the piston produces another power stroke..
this reduces the fuel consumption by 40%..this was velozeta and crower's six stroke engine...

u can go with google for the videos of six stroke engine animated working and its construction and assembly...youtube..

a six stroke engine may have any number of cylinders having six steps to complete one cycle i.e Intake,compression,ignition(expansion) and exhaust...in four stroke these processes are carried out in four steps and in two stroke these are completed in two steps.a six stroke engine may be more effecient with better cooling,less wear less noise but the power out put may be less..
