Internal combustion engine

marine

In an internal combustion engine the energy supplied by a burning fuel is directly converted into mechanical energy by the controlled burning of the fuel in an enclosed space.

Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) Units

energy

Is a heat engine where combustion takes place in a combustion chamber producing force on pistons which in turn produces usable work usually by turning a shaft which can, for example, be coupled to a generator to produce electricity.

Internal combustion engine cooling

energy

Internal combustion engine cooling uses either air or liquid to remove the waste heat from an internal combustion engine.

Internal energy

energy

The internal energy of a thermodynamic system is the energy contained within it. It is the energy necessary to create or prepare the system in any given internal state.

Internal erosion

energy

Internal erosion is the formation of voids within a soil caused by the removal of material by seepage. It is the second most common cause of failure in levees and one of the leading causes of failures in earth dams.

Internal friction

energy

Internal friction is the force resisting motion between the elements making up a solid material while it undergoes deformation.

Internal resistance

energy

A practical electrical power source which is a linear electric circuit may, according to Thévenin's theorem, be represented as an ideal voltage source in series with an impedance.

Internal watertight integrity

marine

The capability of internal structures and their closing appliances to prevent progressive flooding to volumes assumed buoyant or intact.

International Association of Classification Societies (IACS)

marine

IACS was formed in 1968 to promote the highest standard in safety and pollution prevention.
