Engines used in formula one racing cars: Must Read

About Formula One Engine:

Formula One Racing is the most popular single seater auto racing championship. Coming to this article at present days Formula One Racing Cars use 1.6 Liter V6 reciprocating engine. This is four-stroke engines in this the cylinders are used to arrange in 90 degrees and this engine use a turbocharger. This turbocharger is used to increase the Efficiency of Internal Combustion engine by this total efficiency can increase, and also increases the power output of the engine.This engines used to produce around 15000 RPM. Turbochargers are mostly used in trucks, aircraft, heavy engines etc.

  • The main purpose of this engine is to produce the high output power as quickly as possible. In this, pistons used are more than one that is six pistons are used, this is used to reciprocate at high speed inside the cylinder by the help of high pressure produced in it.
  • These engines are used to produce a high thermal efficiency of about 50%.  the output power also depends on the air-fuel compression ratio.
  • These engines use the short stroke by this a quick energy can be produced within a short period of time.
  • Due to high reciprocating speed positions and the high rotating speed of crankshafts, they should be designed in light weights and to withstand high pressure.

Engine Life:

  • These engines are designed in a way that a large amount of output power produced in an only short period like 2-3 hours.
  • This Engines only works for 2-3 hours or up to 3oo miles. this is done due to total power generation of engine is used in a short time this makes huge stress on the engine and occurs failures and gets damages in it. and due to the high wear and tear gives less life to the engine.
  • For this high power generation the tolerance is too tight this makes the engine to damages as fast as possible.
