Abstract

Two interesting papers on crakcase explosions in diesel engines were presented at the recent Oil and Gas Power Conference, of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers at Dallas, Texas. In the first paper “Diesel Engine Crankcase Explosion Investigation”, given by G. W. Ferguson of the Texas Company, the author drew attention to the conflicting opinions as to the composition and state of the crankcase atmosphere in a normally operated Diesel engine and the mechanism of ignition and subsequent propagation of flame throughout the crankcase atmosphere.
