Volumetric efficiency
Posted to Technical Theory Forum on 12/9/2013 149 Replies

After having a discussion with the tech who attends my classes, it was apparent that he was struggling with the concept of volumetric efficiency. That got me thinking about something. Why do we still make references to volumetric efficiency of an engine? The volume is a constant. Do we call it volumetric efficiency simply because that's what we were taught and that's what we're comfortable, regardless of whether or not it is accurate or relevant?
