Did you ever think that buying a new so called “green” vehicle even with lower carbon monoxide emissions would eventually contribute to global warming?
In the automotive industries, we can simply find a lot of car manufacturers releasing new car models each year. We cannot deny that each release of a new series of auto actually has impressive improvements in terms of safety, fuel consumption, environment impact, etc. However, please bear in mind that a lot of energy is used in the process to manufacture a brand new car. On the other hand, large numbers of old cars are abandoned ...

THE EOLECTRIC CAR
There is an economic crisis and lack of jobs worldwide. One solution is to introduce a new product with great sales potential. One of the major solutions is the electric car but currently it has two great disadvantages.
The real disadvantages of the electric cars vs gasoline cars are the following:
Electric cars (see fig 1)
1. +/- 100 Mille Range
2. 8 Hours to Recharge
1. +300 Mille Range
2. 10 Minutes to refuel
The design of EOLECTRIC CAR solved the disadvantages of the electric cars, with the wind that provide ...

This entry presents the results obtained by an ethanol-diesel fueled compression ignition single cylinder engine by varying the compression ratio.
In this work, the compression ratio is varied from 18.5:1 to 19.5:1 and the injection pressure used is 255 bar.
The variable compression ratio is obtained by varying the dimensions of the piston bowl by keeping the standard stroke volume available in the engine cylinder as constant.
The engine is fueled with various proportions of ethanol diesel blends, varying from neat diesel to E20 (80% diesel with 20% ethanol).The overall engine emission, performance and combustion is analyzed ...

Introducing a design concept that integrates wind turbines and the charging system of an electric car to extend its operating range.
All materials required for this function exist. Car designers have great latitude in placement of wind turbines and vehicle contour.
Providing customers with extended range for free using in-situ wind re-charging has an appeal.
This design concept integrated into a production vehicle with extended range using wind energy re-charging offers a premium return on investment.
What problem does your design idea solve?
This design provides a solution to extend the range of ...
The concept of the "extendable vehicle" is based on the needs of families. Currently if families have children involved in sports and other activities they typically need a mini-van type of vehicle. But there are lots of times when such a large vehicle is not needed and a 2 seater would be better (less fuel cost, pollution, etc.). The concept here is to start with a low cost base 2 seat vehicle like a "Smart Car". Along with the base vehicle the consumer can then purchase additional extensions. These extension could add more seats or more storage or both. ...
The project is all about modifications to be done in an f1 car.
1.Innovative points of view:
-Using shock absorbers in inverted position which can be used as automatic jack & this will reduce the time taken for tire change during the race because this study will reduce the time of traveling for the hydraulic jacks they are using.
-Use of a magnetic hub which will reduce the efforts used for loosing and tightening the nuts as well as time will be reduced for tire change.
-Using a shaft in magnetic hubs will be an awesome hybrid concept by which we can produce ...

The project is specifically designed and fabricated for the convenience of physically challenged people who are disabled by their legs.
As in this date there are many options for transportation available for physically challenged persons like, Motorised wheel chair, Hand powered tri-cycle, Scooters..etc
The problem associated with motorised wheel chair is that it way too costly and is not suitable for commuting. Hand powered tri-cycle requires heavy human effort.
So, disable people, now days are preferring scooters more than any other mode of transportation since it is comfortable and cost efficient.
The major ...

Hydrogen plays a major role in future fuel needs. There is not much difference between an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) that runs on hydrogen, compared to an ICE that runs on petrol/gasoline in terms of functioning. The main advantages would be better efficiency and low emission levels, provided, we have the right fuel storage system and an improved cooling system (to counter the additional heat produced when compared to gasoline).
Hydrogen as a fuel in internal combustion engines is a solution for the near future, to realize zero Carbon foot print due to traffic applications. The storage and production ...

The fuel efficiency of CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) driven scooters is very poor (60% of geared bikes of same CC) in city driving conditions mainly due to higher engine operating speeds, slippage in centrifugal clutch and power lost in transient phase plus CVT efficiency. Still these scooters are popular due to ease of driving. illustration 1 describes the existing CVT transmission layout. The major components are Front and Rear Variator Pulleys, Centrifugal Clutch and Final reduction drive (FDR). The suggested design will improve the Fuel efficiency > 40% as seen on actual prototype. The emissions also will be reduced ...
