engines aggragate technical data

engines aggragate technical data

(OP)
Hi everyone!

I am trying to make a presentation concerning up to date internal combustion engines for different applications (light duty/passenger cars, heavy duty, marine/low rpm, aviation etc). I don't need any charts just sheer numbers of power, capacity, weight, engine dimensions, consumption(lt/h)/BSFC(g/kW). I tried to google them, but apart from the fact that the data I found were incomplete (e.g. I couldn't find engine weight and dimensions for passenger cars), it is also impossible to check every engine one by one (light duty applications alone may consist of hundreds of engines). So, I would be really grateful if someone could provide me with any source of information (books, technical papers, data bases etc.) that would have all these technical data aggregated (e.g. in the form of tables). Thank you in advance!

RE: engines aggragate technical data

Wards Auto used to publish a big poster with all the passenger car data each year (probably not BSFC but if had power, torque, bore/stroke, valve train, fueling, etc.). Then they went to online data only then put it behind a pay wall. I don't know what data they have available today. They may well have it for the other vehicle classes too.

Mahle used to have a wall poster with different industrial and marine engines' key parameters.

RE: engines aggragate technical data

Good links! I didn't think that data was still freely distributed.

Those charts are excellent.

Does anyone know if the same is available for European Markets?

Unfortunately, I haven't found anything about European Markets, but I've found an interesting site about motorbike engine specs (yeah I'm looking for these too). I post the link in case someone needs it. Link
The biggest problem, however,is the weight of automotive engines. I start to believe that it's impossible to find.

Even when you find the data, it's hard to be sure it's an apples-to-apples comparison. For any given engine variant, there is a wide range of published masses; due to inclusion or exclusion of accessories & fluids; or other factors I can only guess at; probably mis-information among them. Be that as it may, I'd say that published figures for mass can be taken with a grain of salt as large as +/-10%.
