The ETTO Principle: Efficiency-Thoroughness Trade-Off

Twist of fate research and threat overview have for many years interested by the human issue, quite 'human error'. numerous books and papers were written approximately tips to determine, classify, cast off, hinder and catch up on it. This bias in the direction of the learn of functionality disasters, results in a forget of standard or 'error-free' functionality and the idea that as mess ups and successes have diverse origins there's little to be received from learning them jointly.

2. g. types of oils recommended for the engine, gearbox, final drive, special additives used in the oils, types of grease available, etc. 3. Write to an oil manufacturer and ask for charts showing quantities of oil used in vehicles, viscosity and API ratings, etc. that could be displayed in the motor vehicle workshop. Main components in the lubrication system The lubrication system is mostly pressurized and consists of the following main components. Oil pump draws the oil from the sump and Lubrication system .

Control of the hydraulic pressure applied to the piston A is achieved by computer control of the solenoid operated valve D. Oil pressure is generated by the main engine oil pump and when pressure is released from the hydraulic piston the oil is returned to the sump via the control valve. Because the cam profile is constant, this type of device serves to change valve opening and closing times but the valve period (angle between inlet valve opening and closing) remains constant. Other variable valve-timing systems currently in use also rely on similar technology.

11. Opposed piston or cylinder engine This is where the cylinders are at an angle of 180 apart and usually positioned horizontally (see Fig. 12). g. is it easier to work on for the mechanic?
