- An engine which is very efficient in transferring combustion heat to those parts of the engine which are being cooled by the flow of anti-freeze coolant -- thus maintaining an even temperature of the engine. In this way the engine is warm enough for efficient running and it does not overheat.

Adiabatic process — This article covers adiabatic processes in thermodynamics. For adiabatic processes in quantum mechanics, see adiabatic process (quantum mechanics). For atmospheric adiabatic processes, see lapse rate. In thermodynamics, an adiabatic process or an … Wikipedia
engine — A device for changing fuel energy to mechanical energy. The term applies to the primary source of power generation. In Britain there is a desire to make a clear distinction between engine and motor so that motor refers only to electric power… … Dictionary of automotive terms
Engine cooling — is cooling an engine, typically using either air or liquid.OverviewHeat engines generate mechanical power by extracting energy from heat flows, much as a water wheel extracts mechanical power from a flow of mass falling through a distance.… … Wikipedia
Engine braking — is where the retarding forces within an engine are used to slow a vehicle down, as opposed to using an external braking mechanism, for example friction brakes or magnetic brakes. The term is often confused with several other types of braking,… … Wikipedia
Adiabatic flame temperature — In the study of combustion, there are two types of adiabatic flame temperature depending on how the process is completed: constant volume and constant pressure. The constant volume adiabatic flame temperature is the temperature that results from… … Wikipedia
